Early Summer.

June 29, 2013

Spring is over, and the warm weather is here for the season.  The woods are lush with undergrowth and a full canopy of leaves, and out in the fields the grass is plentiful and tall.  Migration season is over, but birds are raising their young, continuing spring’s courtship.  The weather is drying out, but the heat brings with it the chance of showers during the afternoons and evenings.  One notices more crickets chirping, and fireflies glow at twilight.  Nighthawks and Chimney Swifts circle above in the sky once more. The first batch of summer flowers flourishes.  Enjoy the warmth of the season!

    Tracy, you have brightened up my Saturday night.

    Your photos really exude the joy that is summer, they are so enjoyable. I have to admit that fireflies are one of those late summer evening treasures that I miss in my adopted homeland here on the west coast.

      I didn’t realize that fireflies weren’t out in your neck of the woods Charlie- I’d miss them too. I have to figure out how to get decent night photos of them glowing, but that’s probably beyond my equipment capabilities…

    Nice post! We are enjoying many of the same views.

    Your photos transport me back to the early summer season. It’s a little like summer hell here this week in the west. Thanks for the breath of fresh air! 🙂

      120 degrees is VERY hot- I hope the humidity isn’t bad, Ogee!

        Not much humidity…but not much relief either. Let’s say a little prayer for the power grid. 🙂

    Thank you for the look around.

    Lovely summer scenes.

    I like the squirel at rest. If it is as hot and humid there as it is here I don’t blame him for taking a rest. I think we have just about the same wildflowers blooming now.

      If I lived outside I’d be doing the same thing as the squirrel, Gardener!

      Our wildflowers are finally in sync now- come autumn, maybe they’ll diverge again.

    Beautiful summer scenes. I’m temporarily back in Ohio, and was just out enjoying some similar scenes. 🙂

    There’s nothing that makes me smile like a nestful of baby birds!
