Brown Cattail - My World
There were not too many of these cattails growing around the swamp.
I was glad to see that the few that were there were close to the edge that I was standing on.
And not too far in the water so I could get a good close-up of them.
I remember when I was in girl scouts, many years ago, we learned that the pollen from these plants, at the right time of the year, could be used as flour.
I always was amazed by that, but never had the opportunity to try it.
It must produce quite a bit of pollen though as flour is usually used in measurable amounts.
Hopefully we can back to the swamp to catch them in their next stage - all fluffed out.
