Many of these Great Blue Herons flew off before I could get a shot off trying to get closer. They were thick in this shallow area off of the main lake.
This town was 37 years old before this building was built in 1912, Now there is barely a town in what was once a bustling coal mining area.
These celiosa grow huge blooms in very unique shapes, changing form daily. I was given a bloom years ago by a friend and clip a few blooms to reseed an area each year.
I let these cosmos come up all over the yard , weeding out many. The seed is good goldfinch food and attract lots of butterflies.Flowers grow within flowers
A playground for fairies to play
They smile at me every morning
An end my day in a happy way.
