Erika’s Meadow

My friend Erika has a meadow in her front yard, where different flowers bloom throughout the spring and summer. She invites me to come and take photos, and I find that I love to feature the little bird house in the background, out of focus, as it anchors the scene and makes it a bit romantic. Don’t you think so?

As the lupines begin to fade, the yellow flowers will blossom next. The birds, the bees and the deer love it all.

Summer Meadow

My friend Erika planted 3 1/2 acres of wildflowers several years ago to create a summer meadow. The deer sleep in there at night. “I think the deer think we did this for them,” she commented. ¬†Perhaps the bees do too, as they are busy doing their work by day.
