These marigolds escaped from the planter and the yellow things are weeds (undocumented flowers).

This Larkspur might actually have grown from some wildflower seed that I threw out.   It’s a first!

The oregano moved into the lawn last year and the bees love it.

Just another undocumented flower, but a pretty one.

Some kind of bluebell, it just appeared.

Hidden in this Russian Sage are a couple of fat bumblebees.   All of the bees are enjoying the lovely blossoms before they disappear.   Fall will be here before we know it and it could snow anytime in the next month (or not).

One thought on “Meadow”

  1. Larkspur … we’ll have to try that. We’ve had no luck with the wildflower seeds we’ve cast onto the south-facing slope that is our back yard. The slope is sparsely covered with “native growth” – doesn’t look lush like your meadow.
