Woods

In cool forest shade,

Steps away from hot pavement,

I gaze up, pause, hope.

Yesterday I was drawn to stop on a county road to search for purple flowers that I have been seeing along roadways.  The coolness was a pleasant relief–though the ground was bone dry and there were signs of dead leaves and grass starved for moisture.  I love looking up into a forest canopy dappled by sunlight.  So I directed my camera upwards to share the experience.

      1. The heat wave this summer is hard to endure at times. I noticed some trees in this area are turning yellow due to lack of rain. Sad! Glad you found a respite in nature.

      2. The heat wears me down…not a fan at all. And there are trees losing leaves here and some looking dead…it is sad. Hoping for a thunderstorm tonight…hoping once again…
