Rain Gardens

We saw a beautiful rain garden yesterday, near the library in Hartford, Wisconsin.

This morning I found information about rain gardens at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  You can read here, if you are interested.

This is a poem from my archives:

learning more
about native plants
I too thrive best
where I belong

Four Photos


Rose petal with raindrops


The rose flowers are too high for me to reach so far this year.  How lovely to see the petals on the ferns yesterday.  These kinds of images are gifts, and I think of them as haiku photos.


The peonies are beginning to show their pink color.
