Evening Grasses in the Sun

A bright foreground scene of long grass seed heads standing tall in a wild field, with the sun highlighting the fluffy tops. Around the patch are various wild flowers including vetches, clovers and other grasses in blues and purples. There are dark trees behind the scene.
Wild Grasses in the Evening Sun

We don’t always need the glory of a sunset or sunrise, or the majestic landscape of mountains to thrill and excite us. Sometimes, we need the still, calm peace that the sight of a patch of wild grasses, surrounded by simple wild flowers in the sun brings. Looking back on this older photograph, I found myself recalling the same gentle warmth of that long ago summer evening, despite the bitter cold and snow outside my window today. I hope this gives you, too, my readers, a similar memory of warmth and happy times.

    1. Thank you so much for that lovely comment, Françoise. That spot can have so many different faces! It’s the same one as this post, Sunday Sun Day with the season and time of day accounting for the différences.
      Thanks again

  2. It is a lovely peaceful scene. It makes you just want to lie down beside it and enjoy the warmth and quiet.❤️

  3. Excited into a sense of calm or peace is an interesting concept, Ellie. I like it. And your sunlit grasses fits the bill nicely. Thank you.

    1. I’m so glad you like them, Janet. Both the idea (which I hadn’t connected in that way) and the scene. Thanks so much for your comment. I know what it must have cost you just now.
