Monet’s garden

… or a lawn gone wild? All I know is that the bees and butterflies love it.

Sometimes a daring bluebell will pop up somewhere on the flat part of our property, but it usually doesn’t last more than a day before being nipped off by a hungry deer. However, the flowers have managed to colonize a steep rock face down by the water, where the deer can’t get at them, and I look forward to their bloom every spring.

I had so much fun taking close-ups of this dew-spangled common tansy weed growing in my back yard. The flowers are at all different stages, even so late in the fall, and the dew transformed them from commonplace to beautiful.
