For me, this means cycling: rolling along rural Wisconsin roads, watching trees and flowers, clouds and fields, animals and birds. It means carrying a camera in my jersey pocket, and stopping often to capture bits of this season that passes all too quickly.
Here are some of the things I love about Summer....
Coneflowers tanning their noses:
Woodland Sunflower and Flowering Spurge like small bright stars in the shade of the woods:
Passing a favourite barn:
The tiny white perfection of Whorled Milkweed:
Woolly buds and fuzzy flowers of Mullein:
Rust-topped silos and green-growing corn:
Waves of Queen Anne's Lace and Spotted Knapweed, spangled with dancing butterflies:
An old barn full of shadows, and spotted calves feeding in the sun:
Heliopsis holding its golden cups to the sky:
And small pink clouds at the end of an evening ride.
