in the midst of summer ~ a floral creation I couldn't wait to assemble, inspired by a new (to me) website called Twigery:
I knew just the place to harvest the cattails too:
fields and fields of them surround the perimeter of a lake very near our home.
A beautiful evening, with beautiful (coveted) light, in an exquisitely serene spot at the base of the Rocky Mountains:
It doesn't get much better than this...
Dusk descended softly after we harvested our cattails. I turned the camera in the direction of our house and captured what I could.
Least you think I live in the country (like the photo above eludes), one quarter turn to the left, reality hits:
If I didn't work from home, I wouldn't be opposed to working here (once construction is complete). You can't beat the surroundings even tho it's sad the area has to be developed at all.
Besides the cattails, there's an abundance of milkweed too:
I was happy to see so much but couldn't find one caterpillar or chewed leaf?
All too soon, it was time to leave ~ a final parting photo before heading home:
On this night, in the midst of this spectacular scenery, I couldn't think of any where else I'd rather be.
Be sure to remind me of that sentence come winter!
