Carices of the Low Ground

Foggy meadow morning, carices blooming.

Carex squarrosa

Woven blades of Carex squarrosa

Carex gynandra

Carex annectens

Spike rush

Golden ragwort

Baltimore checkerspot caterpillar - dozens were everywhere in a patch of turtleheads!

Golden Ragwort blooms cover half the meadow right now

(Note: Carex sedges are pretty hard to identify to species - don't take my word for the names above!)
