Late July

Blackberry lilies with Misha painting in background.

 When the bloom has faded, it coils up like a spring, later, the plant
produces it's seeds which resemble blackberries.

summertime images.

I'm spending more time in the garden now, for
the wheel is turning and I can already feel the cooler times ahead.

Borage, Pansies and Bumblebees are part of the rhythm of the day.

The light is changing and colors are softer.

"this is the garden:colours come and go,
frail azures fluttering from night's outer wing
strong silent greens silently lingering,
absolute lights like baths of golden snow.
This is the garden:pursed lips do blow
upon cool flutes within wide glooms,and sing
(of harps celestial to the quivering string)
invisible faces hauntingly and slow."

  1. The flowers and soft colorrs are beautiful. slowly the natuere is calming down after big activities in spring and early summer.

    My eyes and heart are caught by a woman in blue skirt in the backgound with the deer. Such a wonderful big painting!!

    1. Thank you Dori, I appreciate your friendship.

  2. Beautiful lily... a bit like the late toadlily, though bigger it seems? Last night it was in the low 50's here and this morning the air feels chilly and autumnal. Yes, the colder days are just around the wheel a bit.

    1. Yes, it is very much like the toad Lilly! It is a bit taller and form a cluster of berry like seeds later in the season.

      Oh wheel, please let us enjoy the longer light for a bit more:-)

  3. Dear Ramona, Yes, I can sense the change even as our second hot spell of the summer graces the City with clear brilliant skies and lazy-making afternoon temperatures. Sun rises later every morning, and Flossy tends to linger in her bed as I get ready for the morning walk in pre-dawn dim light.
    Blessed summer to you, sus

  4. Hallo, dear Ramona - I remember with full heart our meeting one year ago now. In my blog I made some post about the day, when the doves arrived at Xaverhof.

    I have some problems with my e-mails until next week, so I send here and now this comment to you.

    Greetings to Felse-House and hugs,
    Your Dori

  5. You remembered this! Thank you! Yes, so many wonderful heart feelings
    God bless you for our beautiful friendship. I will comment on your sweet memorial post. XO

    Big hug to the Stuffer house!
