Water Shield Plant

“Living big and joyful and content is almost always the result of our finding satisfaction in life’s ordinary day-to-day pleasures.  And God must be fond of them, too, for He made so many of them for us to enjoy.

~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr., (1940- ) American author

The Water Shield plant is also known as the Dollar Bonnet.  Here is a photo of some that I found floating on a pond in northern Minnesota.  I’m told that this plant indicates a good spot for fishing as it provides shade for panfish, largemouth bass, and northern pike.

“If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.”

I took this shot on a gorgeous fall day while traveling out west.  I was walking and felt rather envious when I noticed the men out fishing on the river.  We must never get so busy  that we fail to take note of the beautiful world which surrounds us!
