Summer in the Northwest

Well..we finally have summer...hot and humid in the day time ..and dramatic thunderstorms at night....lightning striking as the sun sets...it's beautiful...and warm and I feel LAZY.....my hen Dexter is lying on the back porch....like an old dog...
Our garden is planted..and my white peonies are about to bloom...but I caught deer sneaking into the yard last night....and I wonder will I get to photograph my favorite flowers this year or will they be eaten????

If you haven't read my blog in awhile..I am trying diligently to post a haiku or poem and a photo every day....so here goes!

Summer rainy season!
Talking together passing by,

  1. Lovely... I had a fan like that when I was a kid...

  2. Every time I wander by I can't help but think how dreamy Snowflake Farm sounds.... You're so good at writing the exact words to convey the mood and feel...Nice post, Lucy.

  3. I miss thunderstorms...

  4. You are all so sweet..to comment and read and view...I am just playing....having fun...no purpose...thanks for joining me!
