Summer Solstice


as we step from spring into summer
fields are bursting with canola flowers


my three poppy buds have opened their petals
in celebration of life


the skies offer beauty that beckons one to walk the woods


finding wild orchids, lady's slipper with one raindrop
 

this is the first harebell I have seen this season
lovely rosy dots upon it's style


morels like little gnome caps rising from the forest floor
 

raspberry and purple mushrooms here and there
 

it is a wonderful planet we call home
with marvelous findings 
to meet
and 
enjoy

I wish one and all a lovely summer
or 
be it winter on the other side

  7. Dear Tammie - How abruptly summer comes! I remember spring came recently after the lingering winter. The yellow fields of canola is nostalgic spring landscape for me in my part of the world. All your photos speak the beauty and blessing of the summer on this earth. How is the weather there? I hope you can enjoy the rare “strawberry moon” tonight. Unfortunately I can’t see as the sky is covered with heavy rain clouds.

    1. hello Yoko,
      Sorry it took so long for me to respond. These long days are full.
      Thank you for your comment. The weather has been fun, it changes from day to day. Yesterday sunny and warm, picture perfect. Today cooler and cloudy. Temperatures change a lot each day as well. I did enjoy that moon, it was beautiful as was that Solstice day. So now the days begin to shorten, slowly.
