Just been loving these
day lilies in my yard-
soft and rich peach tones
with white stripes.
And then the violet hued phlox
hold the eye in the background.
grabbed a shot in Waterlogue
But the deer must have got
into the yard last night.
We rarely have that problem here-
too many fine houses on the
wood's perimeter- to bother our yard.
All the blooms for this coming week
have been eaten off.
Some blossoms chomped
with the last inch left
as a sad reminder of what might have been
the blooms for the 4th of July.
Just can't take a picture of that.
I almost went into the yard
at the edge of dusk last night
to snap a couple of photos.
Too distracted-- too tired to bother-
and now it is too late.
Just a bit of a reminder-
to grab each moment and savor--
you just never know.
