ColourfulPhotography: A Lovely Meadow!!

Okay, so this is just click bait - I'm just super pre-occupied (and maybe a bit lazy) regarding posting these days, but @sunscape posted a colorful flower shot and it reminded me of this unbelieveably gorgeous meadow that I came across in Spring of 2007.

So I searched my photo archives and found it! Not sure what camera I took this with (my old Canon Sure shot?) but it was near Lake Waramaug in Connecticut. The colors of the poppies and the purple verbena and a little blue cornflower just overwhelm my senses!!!


Creating a flowering meadow from scratch can be difficult and time-consuming, it's not just about throwing a wild flower seed packet out into a field. Here's a how-to from the lady Bird Johnson website in Texas:

And here's a seriously detailed look at creating the right environment emphasizing the importance of Site, Seed, Soil and management

I'm not sure how this meadow was created, but it sure stuck in my mind!!


Happy Gardening everyone!
