“…beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”
“They stretched in never-ending line………..”
“And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.”
My meadow… a landscape inspired by a poem.

The Meadow is located where the walk from the Circle of Friends terminates on the south side. When I first saw this area I knew this would be where I could try “The English Thing’ with naturalized bulbs.
Since the foliage of the bulbs must be allowed to mature and the wildflowers must be allowed to ripen their seed, no mowing is allowed. Voila… a MEADOW!
Totally delightful, easily sustainable, pollinator friendly …. a gift for living away from the city. I wish you could smell it after it gets it annual haircut.
Daffodils (Narcissus) in early spring followed by Woodland Phlox (Phlox divaricata) and Trilliums (Trillium cuneatum), and NOW Spider lilies (lycoris radiata)!!
