I don’t usually like sudden change.

But some changes are forever amazing.

Overnight a giant Red Maple that has never been red,

turned a brilliant shimmering gold.

Why, it was green yesterday.  I know it was green.

But there she is quietly shouting,

“Look at me!

Am I not a brilliant gold?

Just look at me!”

There are secret tunes of wind through leaves

as shadows dance in dappled rhythm

 to the lilting songs of another Virginia summer.

Weekly Photo Challenge 

Pure

How quickly we forget the way the world transforms after a fresh snow.  This is a photo from my archives.  How strange and pure a Virginia wintry scene is from an air-conditioned room at the beginning of a long hot summer.

I thought that Autumn came and went

as winter spread its clenching hand
Blue Ridge Autumn Best

but Indian summer lingered

 

Remember

leaving love notes upon the land.

I am here.  Please don’t forget me.  I am here.

Sometimes there are surprises hidden in my camera.

This pastel painting magically appeared.

It is this afternoon’s Virginia View from my deck

at the end of a gentle rain.

Which Way to Venezuela

Now is the time of year when our fascinating “hummers” start to overeat because Hummingbirds need to fuel up for a long grueling journey to Venezuela.

I heard that on the radio once – the thing about Venezuela being their ultimate destination.

And I tend to believe everything I hear.

This little traveller resting on top of my umbrella has doubts though.

He evidently doesn’t believe what he heard about directions to Venezuela.

He keeps landing and looking north and then looking south.

Meanwhile, six more of his family ignore him and are busy swooping and arguing in a deafening buzz.

They are making a big fuss with all that fighting, and wasting energy over who gets “first dibs”/dips at the feeder.

Ah, I know it will not be long now when they will all take off for Venezuela.

Bon Voyage my little friends!  Fare thee well!

And please –

Listen to the radio next Spring and find your way back to Virginia!

WordPress Daily Post Photo Challenge:  From Every Angle

This week, photograph a stationary subject from three different angles.

I love this charming old fence dressed for a special occasion, calling out for admiration, “Look at me.  I’m not through yet!”
