Fields Pond Audubon Center

The girls and I spent some time at the Fields Pond Audubon Center in Holden, Maine, one day last week. (You can see the fairy houses they built in an earlier post.) Although the day was overcast, the site was still lovely and peaceful.

The flower alongside the visitors' center. We caught sight of several hummingbirds among the tall, dark red bee balm (monarda). I must plant these flowers next season!

Our adventurous and never squeamish Tiny Girl tried to catch a frog at the (somewhat viscous) frog pond, but the frogs were not cooperative. One jumped slightly toward her when she touched it, prompting a blood-curdling scream that shattered the peace for a moment.

These lovely water flowers bloom at the pond's edge.
