is once more looks ing like an impressionist painting. Swaths of blue native phlox (Phlox divericata) make their way between the daffodil foliage and the ‘Wake Robin’ ( Trillium cuneatum) .
are now play ing an important role, so the focus changes.
This is The Meadow viewed from the driveway on west side of the house looking east. (Above)
Soon the weeds & wild grasses will cover this
all and it will look wild & wonderful. Then the hum of beneficial insects, bees and butterflies will fill the air. After the plants set their seed it will get the annual cut. This meadow gives me 12 months of joy!!
