Reminds me of being a kid on the farm. We had them growing in the creek out back.
They are very pleasant childhood memories. Many thanks.
This looks like my part of the world! It’s fun to find plants that are so widely dispersed.
They are also very common here. Thank you.
We picked these as a kid..we called them cat tails.
Are you on whatsapp?
No, I don’t use it.
Yes am on Whatsapp
We also played with them when we were kids. Thank you.
Nice capture of Bulrush. I like this plant.
Thank you very much.
Reblogged this on ausevor.
I have a photo similar to this. I like yours better as it is slightly off center (following that rule of thirds thing) They grow profusely down at the pond below the house. One summer all of mom’s great grandchildren ended up with one in their hands. They brought them back up to the yard and proceeded to have light saber, star wars type battles. What a hilarious mess.
I think it was really messy. But they had fun, as I did at their age, and it was worth it.
Oh yes, it was most definitely worth it. Best part? It was mom’s yard not mine..but even she was laughing, right up until they wanted to go back for more. That was when she asked if that couldn’t wait until next time.
It’s nice when everyone is having fun together and enjoying the time together.
Yes. It really is.
Very nice capture!
Thank you very much, Phil.
I always thought that this plant was too dull to photograph. You showed me how beautiful she is. Must keep an eye on it in our pond.
I think everything is worth photographing. The question is when and where. Even for me this plant is very ordinary, but with bright sunlight and interesting surroundings it looks very attractive. Thank you very much.
We called them cattails. When they are dry you can soak them in Kerosene and make a torch out of them until the stem burns through! :>)
After posting this photo and comments from visitors, I discovered that this plant has many different names. And it mostly depends on the location. But anyway, when I was young, I also used them as a torch. Thank you and thank you for reminding me of this.
You are welcome… great memories!
Love me some cattails! They’re actually edible! https://foragerchef.com/marinated-cattail-hearts/
I can not believe this. You tried? What is their taste?
cattails are beautiful, love the detail in this one 🙂
Thank you so much.
It looks like a corn dog, ugh now I’m hungry!😅 I dont know much on plants but I sure love this one..beautiful picture😃
It looks like you gave me one more name for this very popular plant. Thanks.
