Peaceful Easy Feeling

DAY 20: PEACEFUL
DAY 20: PEACEFUL

In the state park nearby (one of the reasons why we moved here) there is a walking trail that takes the intrepid hiker through a meadow with wetlands, host to lovely wildflowers like these prairie coneflowers and thick rushes of cattails. If you let the thickets engulf you, it’s easy to stop time while observing dragonflies buzz skim the surface of a pond not meant for humans. And if you arrive just after sunrise, the tips of the flowers and grasses will dazzle you with sparkling magic meant only for the eyes of early risers and a peaceful pause in a summer meadow.

This month I’m taking a photo a day and following the topics of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2014. And why don’t you join me? I double-dog dare you!

  1. I am dazzled by those prairie coneflowers! I have boring old purple coneflowers, but these are so much more interesting, with their acorn-like cones. They do convey a peaceful feeling; it’s almost like they’re dancing!
