This scene is also from the view point shown in my post on 29 April. It is so peaceful watching our neighbor’s cows graze in their meadow. The Selah-Yakima Gap provides the background for our maples and conifers. The late afternoon sun provides the soft glow as it warms our bodies.
Our little friend, Lacey, loves to join us while we sit in our upper view point. She loves to explore the area around us. The water intrigues her. I just wait for her to plunge into the stream. She hasn’t gained enough courage yet. Birds are always flying about and settling on the small trees and waters edge. She is fascinated and tries to slowly sneak up on them. No such luck! Just watching her explore and play is entertainment as we enjoy the garden and countryside.
This view of the Kotoji Japanese lantern and the spring-colored Japanese maples is just one of the several focal points that we can see from our view point shown in my previous posting. The afternoon sun makes the reds of the Japanese maples glow as well as highlights the Kotoji. Spring at Heatherwood is brilliant. A glass of red wine goes well with the red Japanese maples. Here’s a toast to Spring!
