All along the ground

Wildflowers mingled with grass

Sway in the saddle.

Art Prescription:  Took a long trail ride today! Perfect weather and the scent of honeysuckle filled the air. Along the ground I saw purple-spring vetch, clover, and purple nettle.

Purple clematis

Ranunculaceae

Buttercup for short.

Art Prescription: Proof you can never know what someone is capable of.  You thought they were a clematis, and all along they were a buttercup.

Thunder in distance

The green forest was silent 

As the sky grew dark.

Art Prescription: Back to the car just in time.

A quick blur in field

Among the white Penstemon

A ruby red throat.

Art Prescription:  Mason Farm.

Pure instinct, the flight

The wave of wing to his mate

And the nest begins.

Art Prescription:  My chickadee batch fledged. And now a pair of blue birds are claiming the box. I adore seeing them messaging each other with subtle wing waves.

News takes breath away

Wide awake at four a. m.

Life is so fragile.

Art Prescription: Live in the moment of each day.

May garden grows tall

To produce July sweetness

Fruit of the labor.

Art Prescription:  The corn fields seem to grow a foot a day…
