once upon a dream


Good morning! I spent the last half hour tromping around in what's left of the Queen Anne's Lace meadow that is featured in the new 2010 WhipUp.Net Calendar. It's been mowed down for the season, but I found these dried stragglers remaining on the edge. They seem to hold an echo of summer, and each one contains the promising seeds of a beautiful meadow to come next August. It will look like this again, I'm sure.


For now, the stormy, gray days of November are here. A hot cup of coffee called me to come in out of the cold, but not before I took this shot in the exact same spot my nieces stood for the shoot entitled Summer Dreams . Brrrr...

Why don't you grab a hot cup of something good, too, and come join me over at Whip Up, where I shared some thoughts and answered a few questions. Pin It

  4. The skeletons of the flowers are just as beautiful. Such a beautiful photograph and its looks so good in the calendar, they couldn't have made a better choice for August :)

  6. Such a beautiful post. I'm not sure why, but the comparison between the summer field and the fall field made me tear up a bit. Something about the progression of the seasons, which is somehow both joyful and melancholy at the same time, resonated with me tonight. Thanks.
