August Leaves

Leaves for a maritime climate.  These are all from the Presqu'ile de Rhuys, a peninsula on the gulf of Morbihan in South Brittany.  One of my favourite places, especially the beach and salt marshes surrounding the Chateau of Suscinio.






The top one is known as Salicorne in french and is a kind of Samphire.  I can never think of this coast without picturing its lovely green flowers and unusual scent.
