Summer Slope

Meadows and grassy roadsides share some of the same flowers. Dandelions, mallows, clover and chicory are considered intrusions on suburban lawns. They add a welcome bit of color to less domesticated  swaths of greenery. That special green light is what really gets to me. It is almost as if the grass is glowing from within, throwing the light of its life force back up onto the trunk and the branches of the trees. What a fine time to be a tree and to be able to stand knee deep in green lushness (if trees had knees...)
