I was looking for photographs suitable for a children’s book … and discovered pictures I never processed. No idea why. I probably intended to go back and do something with them … and finally, I did.
And there, in the shade, is a scarlet blossom. In a sea of green and pastel, I saw it out of the corner of my eye.
Along the river, the wildflowers are blooming. Not a little bit. A lot. In profusion. Blue and white and pink. In the water, along the bank, in the shade along the stream the runs from the river into the wood.
A little bridge over the creek the runs alongside our road. Reflections, water flowers, a summer afternoon.
More pictures from an afternoon along the creek. Birch trees and water flowers. A bright blue sky and deep green leaves. July in the valley.
We were over at the dam yesterday. Didn’t take any pictures there, but I’m pleased to report there is a bit more water following our 4th of July rains. The dam is still dry, but the lake has filled up to about 75%. We need a couple more soakers and we’ll be okay.
Today I’ll be at the hospital all day undergoing tests to see how my heart is doing. I will keep in my mind images from a dreamy afternoon on the bank of a river.
Where white wildflowers grow and birch trees arch over the water.
We scooted over to our little piece of river yesterday.
These were all taken on the banks of Aldrich Creek. It runs parallel the street on which we live.
This little park is in Burriville, just over the Rhode Island border.
A pretty piece of waterway and right now, it’s a riot of green.
