A Summer Sampler

Nodding Thistle flowers on the edge of the woods in Jester Park, Iowa, June 27, 2018.

A nodding thistle napped on the edge of the woods. A rabbit pretended he had the field all to himself.

In the garden, the purple coneflowers conferred in the shade of the evergreen trees. A chipmunk darted out from the undergrowth. He froze on the rock unsure of his next move.

The compass plant turned her face to the rising sun. On the bank of the pond, the hoary vervain stood sentry watching the summer days pass by.
