Morning clouds herald the arrival
of an afternoon storm.
Dressed in their brilliant colors,
with all their bright flags waving,
the flowers are undaunted by the weather.
The flowers pictured here are all growing,
in a tangled blaze of glory,
in the center of the vegetable garden.
This space is intended as a habitat oasis
for pollinators and other beneficial insects.
We will not till this up,
but will allow this mix of wildflowers,
herbs, and old fashioned cutting flowers
to self-seed with wild abandon
and thereby limit disruption
to the life cycles of the insect inhabitants.
Because we used some seed mixes,
it has been fun to discover what plants have emerged.
The daisy-like mums in shades of pink and purple
have been a nice surprise
in these last days of summer.
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.
Steve's Stroll is up!
Head on over to his blog to see how fall is sneaking up,
