Friday Favorite: The Meadow

July 19th, 2013

We have a large grassy area that might be considered a lawn.  Since we just have a small push mower, we left most of it to grow up into a meadow.  It’s been beautiful, filled with wildflowers of all colors, shapes and sizes and a wide variety of grasses as well.

We’re not the only ones enjoying this, we have a doe that’s been grazing regularly down below the house.  She’s been coming out and grazing every week.  We noticed her first a few weeks ago while she was still very pregnant.  She’s since had her fawn, which we’ve heard bleating down in the woods.

What’s your favorite wildflower?
