Lingering Summer

Woodland Sunflowers

Summer Haiku (Linger)

Lingering flowers
Stretch toward the summer sky
Knowing fall is near

Are you ready for seasonal transition where you live?

Spring Haiku (Savor)

Perching in the sun
Bluebird in a Redbud tree
Savors spring like me

I’m so glad it’s springtime now for me! My favorite time of year is finally in full bloom. It’s a perfect day for birdwatching or just taking a stroll in the beautiful outdoors! I hope you all are enjoying your day too!

Basset Haiku (Blanket)

With chill in the air
My basset in a blanket
Looks warmly at me

Are you all ready for Christmas? When my dog, Pal, saw this blanket, he immediately knew it was his. So, it became his early Christmas present. His eyes lit up brightly, and he pranced around with his prized possession. His simple joy warmed my heart!

Wishing you all warm, simple joy this Christmas!

Flutter by, my butterfly
Summer on your wings

This is my twelfth 2017 post for year three of Cardinal Guzman’s photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. You can post a photo gallery (V1) or a single photo (V2) that showcases your view of the month. You can check out the Cardinal’s page for the general challenge rules and see his photo gallery. His photos are fantastic! Like last year, I have added a haiku along with my single V2 photo each month. Even though it has been said that a picture paints a thousand words, I like pairing pictures and words; both can still mean different things to different people.

Thank you to the Cardinal for hosting the challenge all these years. It’s been fun! And, thanks to Su Leslie for keeping the challenge going.

Also, these trees in midst of changing colors and changing seasons seem a good match for the daily post weekly photo challenge: transformation

Suburb-The Changing Seasons V2 (October 2017)

Changing Beauty

Beauty Haiku (Inevitable)

Inevitably
Our impression of beauty
Will change over time

***
The leaves are changing color here. Overall, the colors don’t seem as vibrant this year. People say that is because we have had drier weather. Still, I was struck by the beauty of this fallen leaf, bursting with bright color against the pavement, as I walked through the park on this chilly day. I can hardly believe that October is nearly over. Where has the time gone?

Creek Glow

Creek Haiku (Glow)

Luminescent glow
Glistening on the water
Around rough creek stone

Crossing over the footbridge, I saw that the creek water down far below seemed to be glowing! Perfect for the daily post weekly photo challenge: glow

Suburb-The Changing Seasons V2 (July 2017)

July Lily

Heat Haiku (Composure)

Rise up and stand tall
Against the sweltering heat
Keep cool composure

***
This has been a hot, hot, hot July! It’s hot enough to make tempers flare! So stay cool my friends!!!

***
This flower (tall and proud) popped up overnight despite the heat. I think it is some type of lily. Do you know what kind of flower it is?
