A couple photos

I took this photo yesterday at a park in town. I love the look of the single-file paw prints in the snow. And the blue shadows, so typical of a winter scene. The park has many plantings native to Wisconsin and the Midwest, which leave their stalks upright through the snow. Here are more native plants along the shore of the icy river. They've been planted in the past couple years to help stabilize the shore line and also to help control the geese that stay around. Geese don't like tall plants as predators can hide behind them. It's interesting that after decades of removing these weedy-looking plants, we've learned that they are good for the environment in many ways! So now native plants are considered to be desirable.
