To the side of our property there is a meadow, and at this time of year it is aglow with swaying drifts of colour. Radiant goldenrod blazes in its reflection of the sun. Wild asters in regal purple have rusty centers with bees buzzing. And there are more asters with dainty sprays of white. Queen anne’s lace has been blooming for weeks without a rest. Its intricate circles of creamy white frisk about in the breeze. Wildflowers that thrive on their own with no care, and then bestow such sumptuous splendour!
