“Man hath no part in all this glorious work:
The hand that built the firmament hath heaved
And smoothed these verdant swells, and sown their slopes
*and Everglades swamps* [my edit/addition]
With herbage. . . .”

(William Cullen Bryant)

"Man hath no part in all this glorious work . . ." ... what a meaningful quote!!!

This verdant green image makes me think of New Orleans more than the Everglades, but I guess that's where the similarity lies. Were you on a boat tour when you took this, Glenn?

@Judy aka L@dybug: No, there was a boardwalk that led through this beautiful area.

I like that quote too. Makes one pause and stand back with humility it is hoped. What a lush and life-rich image, with it's abundant reflective serenity. I stand back in awe and admiration for your eye, and for the place you live, and for Nature's amazing art.
