A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

What’s Blooming: Island Meadow

6 Comments

For two years my family has come together to rent a cabin on one of the islands on the St. Lawrence River. I am still on “river time” so this bloom day is a little late. The cabin we rent is on acres of land and on top of the spectacular river view in the front, boasts a large, beautiful meadow in the back. Here is the driveway, a good two hours walk to the cabin, as viewed from the only road on the island.

The wind rustles the grass and wild flowers. The wind shapes the trees.

The Milkweed is in bloom and the fields flutter with Monarchs.

A wild beast – Mojo, a Goldendoodle – seeks shade.

The perfect place to get away from it all. The perfect place to make a wish – may we all return again next year.

Bloom Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens the 15th of each month. Visit Carol’s blog and add your blog to the list so we can see what’s blooming by you!

  1. gosh, that looks like an absolutely lovely getaway! i love all the wildflowers. i'm also kinda smitten with Mr. Mojo 🙂

  2. What a beautiful spot, and a beautiful set of reflections. It brought back memories of camping on one of those islands in the St. Lawrence about 35 years ago. -Jean

  3. What a delightful place to rejuvenate and unwind for awhile! Your images brought it to us — thanks…Lisa

  4. Lucky you. I love the Thousand Islands. The best part of living in Kingston was sailing all through the islands.

  5. That was awesome. I got a few moments of tranquility and warm, scented breezes sitting here in my office, just from reading your post.

  6. So glad you enjoyed! And to think our paths may have crossed here Deborah and Jean! I must explore more of Kingston. My favorite spot to camp here is Kring Point State Park – not on an island but juts out between Goose Bay and the main channel. Wish vacations were longer.

Thank you for joining me in the making of my garden!
