Summer Solstice 2013


Summer Solstice beauty thrills


walking forest paths so lush


never knowing who is far or near


tiny glimpses 
charm my eyes


flowers one with butterflies


flowers and green cloak the earth


mother's hide their tiny fawns


blooms celebrate the sun's rays

a new season dawns

  12. Magical! It's so lush there already. Enjoy your summer blooms and creatures, Tammie. Hope you don't meet any bears at too close proximity. I saw fresh scat the other day and kept looking over my shoulder and into the woods. So far no sightings!

  15. Nature at its most delicate beauty, making us feel so lucky to be part of it all! Isn't sight wonderful?
    You have captured the very essence of the season with the flowers, the tiny details and that woodland path is so inviting. We see the butterfly spreading her wings in the sun and that tiny fawn so sweet, so trusting that mother will return. So full of beauty.
