Dead Creek Reeds

Dead Creek, Addison, Vermont, Adirondacks in the background

There are photographs and ideas that remind me of this blog such as the color of the reeds. I wonder how reeds are harvested for weaving baskets and chair seats. I don't think the reeds in the photograph are cut down because they're in a wildlife refuge environment.


  1. Beauty-full photo Maywyn. It's interesting that so much of that plant can be used. The pollen tastes good( I know from experience) and you can eat the tubers. The leaves can be used for all kinds of things. I always thought that the cat tails were great kid's toys (adults too!) when they are falling apart you can get the fluff off and blow it around-I've done it so many times. We have a stand right by our house.

  2. Hi Debra,
    Thank you. I didn't know there are edible parts. I can't go by reeds without thinking about weaving them. Now I'll think about tubers in soup.:)

  3. I don't know why but I always love to watch reeds, something about the way they move as well as the way they look.
