Summer sweets

I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,

So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.

Swan.jpg

It can be a stunning swan sunset,

Or a bee pollinating a poppy.

It is the discovery

Of flowers wearing wigs,

Wigs.jpg

And the pink fireworks

Of an onion flower.

  7. Beautiful photos, Fiona. I have been discussing bees with a friend in England in the last couple of days. Horrific to think of them disappearing, and taking the rest of the world with them!

    • I don’t live next to the lake anymore – have moved around the corner of the same lake, but a 10-15 minute walk away. Got good views though!
