WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING ALMOST DAILY THUNDER STORMS ACCOMPANIED BY MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF RAIN……. 

WHENEVER THE SUN IS SHINING WE ARE OUT WITH THE CAMERA…… AT LEAST AT ONE OFTHE LAKES…… WE STILL CAN’T GET INTO THE MUSKEG…… HOPEFULLY, ONE DAY SOON……

THIS PLANT IS A MARSH HEDGE-NETTLE…… IT IS ONE OF THE MOST VERSITILE PLANT UP HERE NORTH OF 57…….

PARTS OF IT ARE USED AS A VEGETABLE…… A GREAT MEDICATION FOR PAINFUL JOINTS…… VERTIGO….. CRAMPS…… AND GOUT……  THE TUBEROUS ROOTS CAN ALSO BE DRIED AND GROUND UP AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR WHEAT FLOUR……

IT IS A MEMBER OF THE MINT FAMILY……. BUT DOESN’T SMELL VERY NICE…….

IT’S 12C (54F) WITH A FEW CLOUDS……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE…….
