I visited a site which has human as well as natural history.  There was a store, a dock, a farmhouse, even an Indian shell mound.

Now there is a beach and a meadow.  The native growth has covered all the foundations.

That brown area beside the top rose is a stalk with rose hips from last year’s roses.  I once imagined myself as the kind of person who would collect rose hips to make my own tea.  This meadow and its history brought to mind settlers and those who live off what nature provides.
