No Work Garden
Scattered on the slope of a ditch bank near the lake house, these black eyed susans are a part of the no work garden at the lake house. This month there are tall milkweeds surrounding the compost pile. pink vetch on the bluff, and tufts of white daisies alongs the cedar trail.
The wildflowers are serendipitous splotches of color. Uncontrolled, not watered, unorderly -- they are nature's no work garden and welcomed in the summer's heat.
