Marshes, wetlands, swamps are some of the most beautiful places on earth. The marsh down on Hoffman Road, one of the lowest elevation spots around here before the land gives way to Lake Ontario, is alive with bull frogs, snapping turtles, wild yellow Irises, buttercups and these beautiful Forget Me Nots.
Speaking of gorgeous landscapes Jim and Gail Thomas have a great little show in the 1570 Gallery at Valley Manor on East Avenue. Jim has a series of oil pastel drawings based on the ancient tree in Genesee Valley Park that recently split down the middle and Gail makes the local hills look like Cézanne’s work. Their “Shared Visions” rival the great outdoors in this sensational display.
I’m thinking about suiting up and going Ellen Altfest in the marsh.
