from the white glare
of a midsummer afternoon's heat
Under the Cherry Tree
Picking only the ripest, juiciest, sweetest cherries,
all the while remaining in the shadows.
intermingling with flowers,
straining to follow
their whispered conversations.
A Thief at the Gates?
You don't care,
the scorching heat
has dulled you into a languid state of mind.
into the trees,
you dream of the world beyond
the visible horizon.

Yes, clicking on any of the images will transport you elsewhere.ReplyDelete
At your own risk. ;-)
Such beautiful summery images, Merisi, and your lovely text is like a poem...ReplyDelete
Well, I trust that particular orchard is not as run down by debt and mismanagement as Anya's mother's was.ReplyDelete
Incidentally, the mingling of vegetables with flowers is becoming fashionable again as monocultures require the application of more chemicals.
Another charming post, in my opinion.
You make me want to buy my ticket right this minute..........ReplyDelete
Tomorrow we go to the beach so summer is the time for the countryside.

Yes indeed a midsummer afternoon...your photos just have me wanting to walk in the orchard and across the fields....beautiful...ReplyDelete
Hmm, maybe the rooster was hiding to avoid becoming dinner. :-)ReplyDelete
Always a treat to come by.ReplyDelete
It is hot and humid here too.
I am hoping for rain.
I also grow flowers in with the veggies and veggies with the flowers.
The cherry tree has me longing for fresh cherries.
Thank you for a lovely stroll in the country.
I am ready for a iced coffee!
Again such beautiful images, such interesting commentary...loved it all, but I've never seen you post a "bad" photo...do you ever take one? LOL...I don't believe you do!ReplyDelete
I'll grab my basket
And have a frolic.
I'm loving the rooster in the first shot.ReplyDelete
