Summer rolls on...

Today the calendar flipped from July to August. As we hit the height of Summer here, the meadows have transitioned along with the calendar. We started back in March, when the meadows were green, short and full of blooming daffodils. April & May turned the meadows purple with blooming wild pacific coast iris. By June, the grass was waist high and accented with hundreds of white daisies. Now they have faded and the meadow grasses have browned and dried. But this brown palate is punctuated with white florets of the Queen Anne's Lace. This member of the carrot family is going strong when everything else seems done for the year.
