summer walkabouts

summer always brings to desire to be outdoors...summer walkabouts through meadows, fields, woods... my horse pasture was the destination of today's walkabout...a place teeming with a variety of plant life and one horse...
those are such small plants amongst the pebbles
i haven't been through this gate for awhile...grasses have grown half way up the gate
edge of the forest 

buttercups in the field...sunny and   cheerful...colours of

cow parsnip...large and stately

salt and pepper plants...a stand of buttercups growing in the moist soil of the draw...

i remember pulling this columbines apart during the warm summer days and sucking the nectar from the petals...ah the memories of childhood how sweet they are..
