Summer sunset

Rudbeckia at sunset_staats 10158While in the Kansas City area last weekend, I marveled in a  summer sunset over a field of wildflowers.  I stole away from the busy activities of a picnic and walked across the acreage that my parents had purchased years ago for the family’s enjoyment.  This evening I wanted to drink in the peace and beauty of the hayfield that hadn’t been cleared yet and the plethora of wildflowers that were blooming.  The rains and lack of heat had allowed the flowers to bloom in profusion.  The rudbeckia covered the hillside and seemed to glow in the golden light of the sunset.  As I sat beside the pond at the close of day I was filled with a sense of gratitude for the beauty before me, my parents, my family, and for this lovely bit of property.

    Prairies are magnificent and better than oceans Personal opinion Don’t
    forget to lie down in the flowers and see stars, smell the sweet and the soft bed of natural fibers.
