Pink Bottle Brushes

Friends, these late summer water plants are found in Crex alongside the water lilies.  I cannot identify them but they look like pink bottle brushes that we used to use to clean flasks and test tubes.  At one time in my life I was a chemist for a company that specialized in shampoos, cream rinses, hair dyes and hair spray. All the chemical glassware was washed by hand at the end of the shift.  Everyone was a dishwasher as well as analyst so I knew how to use a bottle brush.  I was twenty-one and straight out of school, those were the days (my friend), we thought they’d never end. Seems like a century ago now.  The internet community calls this flower smartweed or redshank,  til Tomorrow MJ
