Spring Meadow and my opinions
This blog is for art, about art, and not a place for opinion. However, I am frustrated about this beautiful spot near my home. A meadow full of wild flowers and natural grasses that grows along the Little Klickitat River. I love walking along the river and through these grasses and flowers.
Suddenly this spot was declared a park and out came the mower and every year the park people very carefully mow down all these grasses. Each year I suffer. Why, oh why, do they mow? I am guessing that people think these are weeds and they are trying to create a park like place. Also in August these grasses turn golden and the flowers dry and it might be seen as a fire hazard, but still I suffer. As a painter I like natural beauty.
