Summerville........

Summerville

As sunny evenings and longer days lure me outdoors, I slather a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 70 (nothing lesser works) on my skin and cock-a-snook at Mr Sun by facing the camera lens straight into his direction……….More often than not, I am pleased with the resulting haze:) These pics remind me of my childhood summer holidays…....when we (my brother and I) would linger outside in the dusk, long after the little sparrows had disappeared into the thicket........Oh and that reminds me, I am what you can call an “empty-nester” now.......The finch family on my deck..remember the eggs I chanced upon??? Well, little by little they all learned to fly and left :(((

Your photos are just wonderful, Moi, and I love how you tell your stories. I was just recently in Michigan and remembered why I love growing up there!

I will definitely have to try this. With the sun setting later and later every night, the kids are long gone before the sun sets!

These are gorgeous!

So calm and serene...

I like to do this too, especially in the late afternoon during the 'golden glow' time...as in your last lovely shot.
The crown vetch it so pretty, isn't it? We'd like to get it established as a ground cover on our front bank by the road.
