The sweet, calming scent of summer.
Scenting the edge of Beaver Meadow in Leyden, Massachusetts.
At the center of a summer hillside.
Milkweed makes its declaration.
Feathery foliage and a slight pink tinge.
Tiny jewels spark the wayside.
Lowly but delicate and nourishing.
Lushness washes the hollow in North Leyden.
Return to the northern fields of summer.
Last season’s corn on the wayside.
