Summer Meadow Pics by Vincent

I've been meaning to get these pics up for a while now. This is a collection of meadow pics taken by David's brother Vincent toward the end of June. A very wet summer brought forth an explosion of wildflowers, mushrooms, lichens and moss ~ it's a beautiful thing. Especially after 3 years of hot dry summers. We're seeing wild flowers and mushrooms we haven't seen before...
Pixie or Faerie cups
soft lush mossy ground
This is called Old Man's Whiskers or Prairie Smoke. The pic above is one Vince took in late June and the photo below is a pic I took a few weeks later at it's full blown stage. Such a pretty flower ~ for a name like Old Man's Whiskers : )
Meadow Arnica

Mushrooms of infinite variety. and more loveliness
Thanks for these great meadow pics Vince!

I don't know how I missed these fabulous pictures, Vince, - you have a wonderful eye and the soul of an artist, - but I always knew that! Thank you for posting them, Nick.
