I decided to go a bit edgy with this weeks photo of the week (a little botany humour for those in the know). Large-Headed Sedge is typically found in sandy coastal areas just like the regenerating sand dunes where I found it on Iona Island. The sedge is amphiberingian in distribution, meaning it is native to coastal areas on both sides on the Bering Sea. Interestingly the sedge is potential invasive on east coast where it has established in New Jersey.
