Reluctant to Say Goodbye to the Summer

Officially, here in this latitude (or is it longitude?) there only two weeks left of summer. Already, the morning air has changed considerably. It has a crispness to it and feels cool on the skin. Our fruitless mulberry tree has its first section of yellow leaves-not much, but a sign of things to come. Ironically, this tree does not release all of its leaves until just before Thanksgiving. Soon, there will be the sound of the cranes and the snow geese flying south to winter in the bosque as the cottonwoods turn glorious shades of yellow and gold.

As always, I feel like I did a terrible job of logging in any significant time in the hammock. But, hope springs eternal as I vow to do a better job next summer.

And even though I did not do a 'good job' of using these places of quiet this summer, I make sure they come back out each year in order to entice myself to stop and sit for spell and enjoy what is before me at that moment in time.

Come join us every week, as a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

Dynamic shadow lines. Fascinating display of shadow art. And I have to admit, I have never tried a hammock.

Summer has its charms - however, as much as we would love to luxuriate on these warm days, our schedules show us no favors in this season (as in any other). Our Mulberry tree is nice, although its leaves arrive the latest of any tree in the Spring - yet the first to fall in the autumn. We have lots of fruit although it lasts maybe 3 weeks as all the birds and critters feast on all of it until it is gone. Cool mornings envelop us every day it seems - summer, we hardly knew ye...

interesting and splendid shadow lines! I have never, ever sat in a hammock; I figured with my lack of coordination, I'd end up on the ground!

I find it awkward to get in and out of a hammock but lying in one is divine! I hope you make time these next few weeks and enjoy the view upwards. Lovely angles and shadows.

I suggest a few winter uses of the hammock. That way you will be MORE than eager to use it LOTS during the summer!

Good morning Paula,
This is really one of a versatile shots you have in our world of Shadows.

I caught the hammaock and I thought I will have my last chillaxing mood in that after breakfast §:-) do it seems that I am lazy?

But there are too many outside chores waiting for me...

Hope to play with you again nxt week.
