July Photos

Here were are, at the tail-end of July. Is it possible? Before we turn another page on the calendar, I wanted to share a few of this month’s photos that never quite made it into a post of their own.

If you’ve spent much time around here at all, you know how much I love the early mornings. I’m sure this comes as a great surprise to anyone who knew me when I was younger…but being able to see the world in this light is a gift.

This is my summer, in a nutshell. Or a squash blossom. The lazy hum of the bees, the bright yellow flowers. These are the images that keep me warm in the long, dark winters.

I think of this one as ‘finding beauty, wherever it may be.’ Weed or wildflower? Depends on your focus…

And then, there’s this guy. He – or someone(s) like him – sails over my house regularly. It must be thrilling, to soar up there in the blue…

  1. So happy that you let us share in your photos, stunning. The Queen Ann’s Lacy before being fully open is so pretty. I have seen many florists use it and yet many consider it a weed. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    • I always thought it was odd that the seed catalogs have a flower called – if I remember correctly – ‘Ammi Majus’, common name ‘Bishop’s Flower’ that is just a larger Queen Anne’s Lace.
      And why, exactly, would I want to pay for it, when there are fields of it everywhere? 🙂

  2. Fantastic photos!!! Colors are lovely, too. No colors at all here, almost no green!!! Thanks for sharing your colors.
