Just when I thought all the bright cheeriness of summer was long behind us, a thicket of sunflowers burst into bloom along our driveway. I can’t think of a lovelier surprise.
Since moving here in July, I have noticed many such pretty additions to the landscape. Whoever lived here previously must have shared my enjoyment of wildflowers. It makes me excited to see what we will find in the spring.
For now, I get to enjoy the sunnier parts of early autumn. The weather has been so warm, our leaves have yet to change. But I am looking forward to that as well. I have a feeling the large maple in our backyard will be a photographer’s dream.
If only I had the skills to capture it all. I have to give recognition to the writer of Tails and Tales . Every Wednesday she comes up with a creative new way of showcasing her dogs through pictures. Given how long it took me to get Shiva to pose for these ones, I don’t know how she does it. Even strategically placed treats don’t always do the trick for me.
Most of the time, I just get lucky.
