Meadow plantings

This is why I like to have meadows.

this is why meadows work
The light coming through illuminates the pocket meadow in front of our  mountain house.  The much larger meadow in front of the garage at home is equally magical in the afternoon light.

Whether it's grasses or goldenrod, their appearance backlit by the sun going down is always uplifting.

We added a number of additional plants this morning after a native plant sale at the Botanical Gardens of Asheville, some to the front meadow, but others to a 'damp' border below the house and along the ephemeral stream at the base of the ravine.

  1. Isn't buying new plants exciting! We came home with a back seat full of them a couple of days ago. Rob

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
