Prairie Making


I’m missing summer already!

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, —
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do
If bees are few.

~ Emily Dickinson

Mellow Yellow


Y is for Yellow. No! I said I wasn’t going to do that. But look, here it is!

A photo taken a few weeks ago: a yellow flower and a yellow bee:

I thought about taking pictures of a yellow flower — a volunteer that shows up near the pond each year. There was a bloom on it two days ago. I thought it would be pretty after the rain. The rain, apparently, was too strong for this hardy garden visitor, knocking off its petals. There are several more buds, so there will be more flowers another day.
