Wildflower Ways

Behind our son and daughter-in-law’s new home in Taos, a wildflower meadow imagewas in full imagebloom, bordering a pasture and adjacent to the artist’s studio.  When they departed on a well deserved holiday, we came to stay to watch over their canine family.  No small task, as that encompassed an elderly golden with medical needs, a lovely wandering hound, and a brand new Labrador retriever puppy.  Somehow during “puppy naps”, we wandered around the wildflowers, and discovered paths that the wildflowers paid no heed to while carrying on in their wild ways!  So we have been clearing no tidying – but only as much as a wildflower meadow would want.  New Mexixo is truly an enchanted land!

    Jayne,
    What a beautiful vista out of their back gate. It looks like it’s untamed beauty at its best.
    What a good mom and dad you are to take care of the grand-doggies while the kids take a vacation. A puppy can be so enchanting and unruly all at the same time. 🙂
    xo,
    Karen

    It sounds like you are enjoying a wild time in Taos, Jayne! The wildflower meadow is just lovely. It makes me want to fill a vase or old crock with colorful wildflower blossoms! Do you think the meadow will stay green all summer long? Or will the hot summer sun eventually turn the foliage brown? Enjoy every day while you are discovering all that Taos has to offer! ♡

  5. We had our honeymoon in northern New Mexico and I would love to go back. Those yellow flowers are called Mexican Hat, a kind of Ratibida I think. Such a beautiful and different part of the country. Oh, and don’t forget to eat some sopapillas!
