    Mad jelly over here! I need to vacation at Dozer's place. No bogs in my neck of the woods.

    Made it back into the bog today. I plan was to walk the frozen lake and sphagnum floats to find other growing areas. Lots of snow. I brought my snow shoes and it's a good thing because with the holes in the sphagnum and 2 feet of snow I never could of done it..





    Other than deep snow everything was frozen hard except for a spot next to a beaver lodge. I put my hiking poll in I didn't touch the bottom and the ice had a lot of slush on top so I moved on..

    purp seed heads just keeping above the snow.
    dug down to a purpurea.

    Neat, Jim! More folks need to post off season photos; they are quite insightful. It is particularly interesting to see the seed scattered on the snow. Was it like that when you found it? Depending on snow melt and incline that could either lead to lots of seed dispersal or none.

    Again, cool beans! Thanks.

    I did that but it didn't take much to knock seeds out . Really making me think about why they are still in there. Food for birds. ? Another way to be moved around by wind and rain?

    Good work cracking those pods open and releasing the seeds. I often find full seed pods during the summer from the previous year. This population in CT had many old full pods of seed. If you look carefully, you might be able to see a few old flowers in the photos.

    Fantastic photos! Really cool to see a wintry bog, so different from summertime but still so beautiful.

    Awesome pictures throughout the seasons. I miss the northern Sphagnum bogs.
