HELPFUL TIP:

Settings should always be chosen with care. Consider the emotion you want your viewpoint character to feel and how setting choices, weather elements, and symbolism might build a specific mood in the scene, create tension and conflict, or even raise the stakes.
SIGHTS:
Long grass seeded with wildflowers
Sunlight glimmering off blades of grass
Dry leaves tangled in clumps of grass
Tall, leafy trees hemming the clearing
Butterflies and dragonflies passing over the growth
Bees flitting between flowers
Spiders building webs
Wild blackberry thickets
Deer, foxes, rabbits, mice, moles, and snakes moving furtively about
Bright red ladybugs and tiny ants crawling through the lush grass
Birds darting into the grass to collect items for their nests
Mushrooms growing around a half-buried rotten log
Thin animal trails cutting through the growth
Grasses stirring from the wind or the movements of animals
Clouds drifting across the sky in feathery patterns
A stream or brook cutting through the grass
Distant mountains or hills
Pollen flecking the air as it drifts on the breeze
Shadows drifting over the meadow as clouds pass overhead
Moss and rocks
