Garbage




Purple loosestrife may seem like a beautiful plant, but it is actually a very nasty invasive species...essentially botanical garbage.

  3. Great shot and I love how the bush seems to fit nicely into the water's outline.

  4. It's nearly a contradiction in itself: So beautiful a plant can be a garbage. I know these things, we have the same problem with another plant: A sort of very proliferting Impatiens.

  5. Hi Bobbi,
    It's a beautiful piece of garbage. But I know about invasive plants. I have one in my garden. A Trumpet Vine is very invasive. Have a great day!

  8. I hear you about non native species taking over, but this is perhaps the prettiest garbage I have seen.

  9. High praise from Steven! This is a lovely scene if you don't know how it can take over wetlands.

  12. May be a pesty species but you made a beautiful composition out of it. Love how all the shapes interconnect and of course the reflections are icing on the cake!
