Evening steals in soft,
quilt-corners at a
country picnic, patchwork
of grasses. Water trickles
slow, gossiping in wet
whispers of fire-flies and
wolf willows, long days
and scented nights. The
sun teases, kissing here,
nuzzling there, bleaching
foliage with each
with dappled brush
a magnificent scene,
“Pastoral Summer’s Eve’.
Lovely; and, so, that’s what has been hidden under the snow for so long 😉
🙂 Pretty rude of winter to cover all that beauty up, isn’t it??
Beautiful imagery! Love the water gossiping in wet whispers.
Thank you Janet! This scene can’t help but inspire, don’t you think? It is very near my home, and a lovely trail to stir up the imagination.
I could stare at that picture all day!
This is the view 1/4 mile from our driveway, the start to a wonderful quadding trail along our nearby creek. We are so blessed to have this in our ‘backyard’!
What a lovely view in your picture, Melody! I can breathe the fresh air.. in these days down here, in Italy, it’s so desperately hot.. 😉
We have had lovely moderate temperatures with intermittent rain – the recipe for a good garden 😉 Thank you, Laura.
Melody, this is so very lovely!
Blessings ~ Wendy
Almost – not quite, because it’s missing my mountains – but ALMOST as nice as some of your local walking trails….
Gorgeous, Melody! You took me there!
🙂 I missed out on a visit???
Just think it wasn’t long ago when we were waiting for such a time as this. Praise God summer has sprung!
Winter felt like it would never end for a while there – but ‘this too shall pass’. I can’t seem to get enough of this green, so I’m afraid I’m neglecting my housework in order to be outdoors as much as I can!! 🙂
WOW-wonderful imagery, Mel!
Thanks CJ!! It’s rather a lovely view, I think…
So pretty. I can smell the grass.
I hope you don’t have allergies! 🙂
