SkyWatch Friday: peace in the valley

This flat, wide marshland is called Grass Lake and before the drought last year it was common to see it scattered with Great White Egrets or ducks. This year the water level is higher and very lush from the rains but no birds when I rode my bike here on an otherwise perfect summer morning. Mullein stalks are in the foreground with yarrow and clover. Enjoy how cleverly Mother Nature arranges the colors in her bouquets in this field in the photo below.More beautiful sky views are at Skywatch Friday. Happy viewing!

The yellow midst the pink makes a gorgeous photo! But, ahem! I'm really here to see the sly and it is lovely. What a shame the birds did not return this year now that the lake has water again!

Great photos! I feel more relaxed just by looking at these. Thanks!

Very peaceful - balm for the soul!
I'm sure the birds will return one day.
You're so right about the beautiful posy that Nature designs - very pretty indeed!
