Four weeks between 'Meadow' pages. Why? Well, it has been very hot in Aurora. On several occasions when I planned to walk/photograph I have decided that I just wasn't going to spend a couple of hours in the heat!  While I 'sat' the meadow prospered. We now have lots of Joe Pye Weed in bloom, attracting Monarchs too. The riparian planting along the river is providing some ripening berries and lots of lush foliage. Yes, we are starting to see the first signs of autumn.
