I've been taking lovely walks in the late afternoon sunshine.
Dry leaves crunch beneath my feet.
The air is warm and still.
The late summer fields are full of golden flowers.
Mimicking the late afternoon sun.
Another lovely summer comes to a beautiful close.
Blackberries ripen in the languid air, nature's bounty free for the taking.
Filling my pail becomes a daily ritual in anticipation of cobblers, pies and tarts.
Watchful eyes peer from the shadows, hoping my browsings rustle up a meal.
Can you see my little friend?
Sculptural seed pods replace summer's beauty.
Hummingbirds sip nectar from the last of the season's flowers.
Swallows gather in the late summer skies, garnering strength for their long migration soon to come.
And as the sun sets on another beautiful day, I savor these moments in time, keeping them locked away to open up once again when the summer sun is but a distant memory.
What is your favorite memory of summer?
