Rush in the Sky

I noticed these nice cloud patterns over our patio pond this week.  The rush spikes still have their seed heads.  Hold on though- one of them looks a little strange.

Another Cross Spider!  They are everywhere.  This is just above the spot that was in my last post where a Cross Spider didn’t fare too well.

This rush plant towers over the patio pond.  I sometimes forget whether it is a rush or a sedge.  Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast by Jim Pojar and Andy MacKinnon offers a semi-rhyme to keep them straight:

Sedges have edges and rushes are round.

Not the catchiest one I’ve ever heard, but it will probably help me to keep them straight!
