Hermitage (#8)

I was fascinated by cattails as a child, though I no longer remember why.

During our recent stay at the hermitage, camera and I enjoyed receiving images of some particularly fluffy specimens.

What wondrous plants! (See cattails facts to learn more.) Who would have guessed that such a wealth of nutrition, insulation and other uses could be derived from one plant?

And this one plant is but one species of the million or more with which the Creator has endowed our earth. Too glorious for words…
