Summer Rain

Summer Rain; the earth smells wonderful, the air is fragrant and warm. The storm passes swiftly and everything grows lush. In the garden foraging occurs looking for the first ripe raspberry, strawberry and blackberry. Tomatoes and basil, overblown dahlias and towering sunflowers, sensory overload!

Summer Reds

Montbretia and grasses, I'm not sure which I like better? With the grass or without?.....What do you think? I'm hoping these will multiply in the garden loving watching the humming birds visit.

Looking Back Feeling Lonely

Summer adventures over, new friends left behind feeling a little lost and lonely.

Carry as many as you can read

Seeds suspended in the wind

Weeds Grasses and seed-pods. The seeds float suspended in the wind to pop up everywhere. I have decided to embrace nature and find the beauty in weeds. If you can't beat'em celebrate them! For Illustration Friday & Paint Party Friday.
