The Meadows

The Agrostis capillaris grass just came into bloom in the meadows, taking the meadow-loveliness to another level. Yesterday morning I was out moving the sprinklers and came across the dew in the long grass and it was breathtaking. I continued to photograph it as it changed through the day. Here is the meadow in the early morning light, with a few remaining meadow cranesbill (Geranium pratense) and the native Iris latifolia.

The afternoon light,

with Centaurea nigra just coming into bloom.

I love coming up from the lower meadow and seeing the long border against the tall grass!


  1. Just beautiful Helen! Gorgeous light. I love that view of the house.
