Bordering the marshes and streams are the wet meadows, which glow with rich and varied plant life. Tall grasses and rushes wave among the yellow lilies, grass of Parnassus, and meadow-rue. Nestling deep down, half hidden in moss and cress, are the dainty marsh harebell and sweet white violet. Here we shall cull a choice bouquet. We still need our rubbers over tall shoes. The latter I always wear in walking, as a protection from possible snake bites. The former I suspend in a bag from my belt, in order to have them "handy." The wet meadow and swain]) overlap each other, and some flowers may be grouped in this chapter which also grow in the marshes.
