Weekends in the Country

by Kay~Kacey on 6/17/2013

Ah, have I mentioned how much I like living in the country? Weekends are, well, fabulous.

I just might, might, spend a bit of time driving the golf cart around the property and take photos of the wildflowers. So, you in the know…what is this one? So pretty. It looks like it will bloom all the way up the stalk. Here is a close up of it, if that helps.

Oh, and you know SuperGuy’s rock pile? Well, I sowed wildflower seeds all among the rocks. I thought it would look so pretty. I looked out and he was using roundup to kill the grass and “weeds” in between the rocks…


We planted these cute little Loblolly pines at the beginning of the spring. Like about a million of them. I don’t lie… Then we caged them so the deer wouldn’t feast on them.

Oh, and more wildflowers in the meadow. These are a light purple in color. So pretty. Any ideas? I must get a Missouri wildflower book…purple wild flowers

I also put stakes by some of the cedars in the meadow so they won’t get run over by SuperGuy somebody in the tractor. Okay, I just might have run into it with the golf cart…


Oh, and SuperGuy has mowed a pathway all around the outside of the meadow so we can water the trees we’ve planted. Such a fun golf cart race track ;)

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I’m ready for the next one!

Hi, Kacey. Your weekend looks relaxing to me. The second wildflower (purple one) is crown vetch. It’s used for erosion control, particularly along roadways, but has since been labeled as an invasive species in many states.
