A walk in the meadow

Come with me for a walk in the meadow at Uplands Park on a sunny Saturday morning.

The path leads through some trees and opens up to this lovely view with the sun illuminating the grass stems and the beautiful blue of the Camas flowers.

Here's a close up of the Blue Camas.

As we walk deeper into the meadow our eyes are drawn to the long stems of the blooming buttercup growing into the sky.   

Closer up you can see the darling buds with the tiny little hairs.  I don't like them in my garden much but here they're really sweet.

Ahead in the distance is a clump of Lupine reaching up to the sky.

All around is the warbling of the Red Winged Blackbirds and other birdsong.  It's such a peaceful spot. If we had time we could spread a blanket in a sheltered spot and take some time to soak in the peace.  But appointments call so we'll have to wander back to where we parked the car and continue with our Saturday errands.


  1. Lupines already? Lucky you!

  2. I miss buttercups. I don't see them around here.

    Beautiful pics!

  3. Thank you for taking me along on your walk. It was so beautiful...your words took me right there.

    I wish buttercups weren't quite so successful in their conquest of the garden. Their flowers are so pretty and contrast perfectly with lupinesand camas.


I really appreciate your comments.
