The dream ship

If I had a dream ship, I'd steer it backward. I'd anchor to a day in August, when the last blooms didn't know they'd be the last blooms. I'd pick enough for a winter's-worth of books.

But until then, I'll enjoy what I've already planted. 

Or what others have planted for me. I found this little cluster of leaves in a second-hand copy of Scott's The Lady of the Lake, and have left them just as they are. 

August days feel closest when I can open up a book and a flower opens, too. 


  1. Nice to see those little apartment vignettes! I told you they would make the best photos :)
    Beautiful post!

    1. Thanks, Karyn! The funny part about this photo set is that I had my camera's WB set to tungsten by accident -- and I couldn't be happier with the results! I guess that's what you meant when you said that sometimes good photos happen when you break the rules : )
