Summer Reflections


Ms. Summer is busy packing her bags, getting ready to leave.
She sees the signs ~
shorter days,
cooler nights,
the first touches of golden color
in the foliage, 
and
Canadian Geese heralding the coming of Fall.

I will miss her wonderful, billowy cloud reflections on the lake,


 dancing among the lilly pads,


towering storm clouds,


and raindrops.
It has been a beautiful display of color, pattern, and ever changing imagery!

  18. Beautiful photos. I kind of wish summer was on its way out here in AZ but we still have awhile to go, another month and a half, and it's been a brutally hot August.

  20. I will miss it too so much. We have a rally nice today and I have just watched outside all the green and try to restore that sight into my brains, I hope this never ends but it will. I really do hate Finland during the winter, I know it is harsh to say but I hate winter so much.

  21. Sorry, I arrive so late. The second and the last photos are beautiful. Like your description of Ms Summer. For one moment I almost thought your child is leaving for college. Oh well, that's because we have Summer and blue skies throughout the year.

    Btw, congrats! Your caption has been selected and is being posted today.
