Dangerous

It's pretty and it looks all soft and harmless--but phragmities is an invasive species which threatens native plants.  There's a stand of it at Paper Goods Pond.

  1. I would never guess something that is so beautiful (especially against those cloud reflections) could be so dangerous!

  4. May be dangerous to the environment, but your photo made it look lovely.

  5. Very pretty reflected in the pond. We are starting to get water hemlock (looks like Queen Anne's Lace) in our area which is poisonous to livestock and humans. Pretty but deadly.
