    Hi Mary,

    We so enjoy your postings! Many reflect our own experiences with nature. The Tamarack is a favorite of ours. Please enjoy the attached photo I took in the bog at Lake Carmi State Park.

    All the Best to You, deborah

    • Hi Deborah,
      Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t pass on photos to me, and I would love to see it. If you could send it to me at mholland@vermontel.net that would be great!
