Horsetails

I’d say this both fits in my “wildness” project and has a distinct whiff of Eliot Porter. Horsetails are one of the earliest vascular plants, far older than the dinosaurs, and are said to be pretty much impossible to dig out of your garden if they get established. I have no idea if they’re exotics here (Mercer Slough – more old Lake Washington lake bed). I hope not; I’ve always been fond of them.
