This post is for Monika Kinner-Whalen of My Sweet Prairie. Monika is a quilter, artist and photographer whose blog I read on a regular basis. One of the things I enjoy most is how Monika sees beauty in everyday, ordinary things which most of us miss. Monika often photographs grasses, wildflowers, and fields of flax on her beloved prairies and then translates those photographs into exquisite thread painted works of art. Earlier today, hubby and I visited the beeyard and the gate at the end of the lane made me think of Monika.
Goldenrod, white asters, mountain ash berries, spikes of Timothy and a myriad of things I can't name spilled over an old section of fence.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my big camera with me but I plan to revisit and take some more shots.
My favourite was this part with dead, almost silver branches reaching over the red berries.
