Wildflowers of Miner's Marsh

August 04, 2015

Laura and I visited Miner's Marsh in Kentville, in late July. This was my first visit to this marsh and Laura's third.

The marsh held the usual mix of summer dabbling ducks and divers, including Pied-billed Grebe, but our visit was for the wildflowers.
