Farewell Beloved Spring

wandering the woods
tis the last day of spring
her beauty
is abundant
treasures fill my eyes
music as the trees sway
and the birds sing and sing

ummm
my first wild strawberries of the year
they are so tiny

tiny orchid with minuscule mama aphid and two youngsters
click on the photo to see them!
two other creatures also~

lovely
Queen's Cup


the most petite coral orchid

we lean into summer
farewell beloved Spring

  1. The wild strawberries and coral orchid look like miniature sculptures: how beautiful. While you lean into summer, we are leaning into (nay, being swallowed up by) the inferno. It's good to feel the cool from your photographs themselves.

  19. Such lovely poetry calling us into Summer...
    We have been enjoying little walks picking teeny wild strawberries, one of the gifts nature has left along her way.

  20. Beautiful words, gorgeous photos. I took some wild strawberry photos yesterday too, but not as wonderful as yours.

    I love the other flowers you captured - I have never seen most of them. How rare and exquisite to be given a glimpse into Mother Nature's bouquet.

  22. The strwberries are wonderful, so tender-looking. And a wonderful eye to see the creatures on the orchid.

  23. Those coral orchids are amazing, and early summer strawberries....yummmm!

    Leaning into summer is exactly what it feels like, buoyed by the heavy warm air, the thick scent of honeysuckle, freshly mown grass, morning coffee. I'm ready, more than ready. Looking forward to following your summer journeys.
