Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Late Summer

Every year when Spring begins to burst out in color, I tell myself that this is my favorite time of the year. I love to see the new shoots popping out of the mud, and the Spring wildflowers never fail to excite me. I take a ton of pictures during the Spring time! The colors are bright and light!

Then, when this time of year rolls around, I very much appreciate the more muted colors of late Summer. The Joe Pye Weed, Goldenrods, and Ironweed fill the roadsides, like Summer’s last hurrah, for us to enjoy as we drive or walk by.

And I can’t decide which season I enjoy most!

Maybe the point is to just enjoy whichever season we are in. There are beauties to behold now, and they might now be here tomorrow.

Here are a few of my favorite wildflowers from down our road.
