FOTD – August 14 – Wildflowers on the beaches of Maine

I have always loved flowers along the beaches. Just before the earth becomes sand, there are also asters and other golden wildflowers.

  4. HI Marilyn, it still looks pretty despite the dead flowers and dryness. This on-going drought in the Northern Hemisphere is really dreadful. It looks like you had a nice break.


    • The heat has broken, at least for a while, but the drought is ongoing. So with increasing worry, we all wait for rain. It’s bad here, but it’s just as bad if not worse out west. I think once you get down into Mexico, they still are getting rain. The US and Canada, not so much. And in the far west, they haven’t even gotten a break from the heat. It was great to get away. Now, if the rain gods are listening, please, SEND RAIN!

      • I have experienced many droughts in my life, Marilyn, so I know how awful they are. I am really hoping these droughts will break everywhere soon or there are going to be big food shortages which is a huge worry.


  5. This certainly looks so amazing 🙂
