On Sunday we visited Lee Turkey Farm in East Windsor, New Jersey. Across from the farm is a stream, and some lovely wildflowers were growing. The yellow wildflower above seemed to attract bees.
This droopy pale orange flower added a wispy look to the scene.
These green, round leaves were growing in the stream, but I didn’t see any lilies.
This white flower seems to be a kind of honeysuckle.
Would this little daisy-like flower be a fairy aster?

Lovely wildflowers and your photos are wonderful.
Wonderful photos of the wildflowers, Leora! I’m not sure which aster that is – there are so many different varieties!
I like the top picture best. What sort of farm was this?
It was a pick it yourself farm – we mostly picked apples. The girls also picked some corn (though after all the excitement about picking the corn, my daughter ate none of it). We did a corn maze, sort of – halfway through, the girls decide they were tired. I think my husband was disappointed.
What lovely colors and shapes!
I love the photo of the honeysuckle blossom!
lovely selection of flowers!
The wildflowers are so beautiful. Great shots.
To answer your question, the picket fence is next to a small man-made (or more precisely man-redirected) waterfall which flows from one lake, through a restored mill, down to a second larger lake. It’s a lovely spot indeed, though not quite as pristine and natural as it appears in this photo ;).
My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
I love ‘pick your own’…I would have thought that your daughter would have liked to eat something she picked, but my daughter was a very picky and slow eater…Love the wild flowers…
Unfortunately, it’s out of sight, out of mind for her. She also found the apples too tart. Lots of pies planned here.
