Silver Lake

Took a walk today with mrs.jss around Silver Lake in downtown Rochester. Felt like one of the last gorgeous summer days before the Fall weather hits. The fence you see is part of an erosion control program to grow wildflowers and other flora to help stop the geese poo runoff and make the water in the lake cleaner. It takes a few years for the plants to get established, but once thats done the fences will be removed. It's working well as the walkway around the lake is much cleaner than it was two years ago when we last did a circuit!

The geese are having finding great eats at the dam on the lake, the water in the pictures is only a few inches deep and most of them were gobbling something every few minutes!
