There are Problems with Country Life

by Kay~Kacey on 6/6/2013

There are downsides to country life…like…I went to take these gorgeous photos of flowers  in our meadow. Loved the single daisy. If wild flowers are called daisies?

Then I got this bunch of white flowers growing near our rock pile. Not sure what they are?

We also have a few of these brilliantly colored orange poppies.oranage poppies

More daisies in the meadow grass…love the pretty meadow grass…

Yes, yet more daisies in the grass.

Okay, only one more photo of the daisies in the meadow. I promise…

Well, here is one of the very pretty meadow grass. I love to watch it sway in the wind. But what about that downside to country life?

Ticks. I am not amused. Two so far for me…one which survived a ride in the clothes washer and was still on my tank top. Not amused. I think SuperGuy has had about 5. Sigh. So far, seriously, that’s the only downside of country living as far as I can tell…

The first plant is an Oxeye Daisy- Chrysanthemum leucanthemum a non-native. The other rock plant is White Crownbeard – Verbesina virginica it is a native

The second flower is common yarrow, achillea millefolium. No doubt about it. Native to Missouri and elsewhere and quite useful.

Well, and there you have it. I knew there would be more informed people about flowers than I am. Love my meadow…minus the ticks…

These are beautiful! I hate ticks two. Have had Lyme’s disease twice.
