Marsilea quadrifolia. In Ongley Pond at the White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield, CT.
This is a good example for not getting rid of old photos. When I took it, it was a muddy mess and I didn’t have the tools to clean it up. When it came up randomly in a picture picker recently, I ran it through PhotoShop and was able to make it presentable. The hidden detail was surprising.

It’s hard to learn on an empty stomach. Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT has a foodshare program called The Pantry, where food donations are collected and distributed to students who should be more hungry for knowledge than for food.
Donated food and household supplies go from bins around the campus to an actual pantry where “insecure” students can get them to help them through the semester.

A ghostly Wildwolf haunts Johnson’s Duckpin Lanes in Hamden, CT in a spirited one-piece werewolf ensemble.
Wildwolf shows that if you’re going to be an apparition, you can do better than manifesting in a plain sheet. Unless you’re Mr. Boo. He can look good in any linen.
