Summer Memories

As a way of saying 'goodbye' to summer, I'd like to present some of the pictures I captured this summer.

I hope this has inspired you to think back on your summer and recall some of its shining moments.  I wish you a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend as we say a fond farewell to summer and look forward to Fall's upcoming arrival.

An entire Summer, caught perfect and whole, as these panes roll up. You are a true presser-of-the-petals, charmer of birds, confidante of swallowtails, as you capture the glimpses of the real and true, and our days melt past like dropped popsicles.

Save for your talented eye and lens, we'd too often merely look down, pick up the forgotten sticks, and walk on.

Churchyard daisies---what a charming name.
