Earth Garden IX: Philbrick Cricenti Bog

I’ve long known that a salt marsh is just about my favourite place to be or see, but only recently — in the last four or five years — have I realised the pull of the bog, or fen, for me.

On Sunday, I walked a bog that I’ve visited perhaps 10 times before, and still there was so much new and interesting to notice. (Click photo to enlarge.)
