Sunday Stroll: Going Wild

On a rainy Sunday, I walk through wet grass
and color rises up to greet me.
Robin's Egg blue,

and Rose Campion

Pale Milkweed Pink

and Black-eyed Susan yellow.

Sweet white fleabane bends in the cool breeze
 that followed the storm to these northern hills,

and the crimson stems of wild raspberry blossoms 
glow against verdant green leaves.

Green cedar berries drip rain water onto the earth,

and wild mint pushes up through the field grasses 
at the edge of the woods.

St. Johnswort lifts herself brightly along the treeline,

and mullein leaves shine,
softly silver.

Even the pale pink bindweed
is pretty after a rain.

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you color and light.

Pom Pom,
Oh it is! So beautiful here... rain or shine! Have a wonderful week too!

Ah, you are quite a few weeks ahead of us in summer growth. I am looking forward to my blackberry bramble picking, but am glad for a breather after recently picking 130 pounds of strawberries (not all at once! lol!)

Thank you for stopping in. Loved my quiet morning walk and am glad I have the opportunity to share it!

I loved seeing the blue robin's egg and pretty wildflowers. Yesterday was the first rain of our monsoon season. Thanks for sharing your delightful walk!

Marcie said...

Diane, Thank you for returning my visit. Isn't the blue of that egg just a perfect color? I love it! I guess the monsoon is good, but I hope it is a particularly nurturing and gentle monsoon season!
