last week today



a simple yellow bloom with soft gray green leaves

became a daily respite through camera lens

barely reaching bud seen on day one

amid shadows and rain storm midweek

to blooms wide open in sunshine

the ebb and flow of my week

settled in a garden

it's amazing how sometimes nature perfectly reflects things going on in our lives (if I interpreted that correctly!)

Tracy said...

Such softness and delight... I like the silvery-green of the dusty miller with the golden yellows--lovely pairing! :o) Happy Week, Elk ((HUGS))

Wow Elk, the synchronicity of things sometimes leaves me stunned. I have been immersing myself in images popping with yellows… and you post these! Tiny little suns, so beautiful! x Alisa

What wonderful photos-- your shots are so clear and sharp--excellent. And, yes, we all need to tend to the garden of life (so well put). I, especially need to water and fertilize a little more and pull some of those "weeds" out. Hope your daughter has a wonderful summer. Mine just moved up to Kansas City to start Physical Therapy school. I'm certainly going to miss her. Mickie :)
