Marshmallows on Weldon Creek

Today I was out doing assignments. Some days I have to really hunt for something to share, something just a little prettier or out of the ordinary. But this morning, I hadn't even arrived at my first work site, and I was stunned by this little nothing of a wide spot in a creek that I've crossed dozens of times without paying a bit of attention.

Every tussock of vegetation, probably sedges, is covered with a marshmallow pillow.

You can see how they've built up with each successive sugary snowfall.

An impressive collection of them.

How do I know they are marshmallows and not just ordinary snow? Because there is a big toothy mouth gobbling them up.

You're right, it really does look like marshmallows. It almost makes me wish I had more snow around here.
