Late summer flowers in a stoneware jug, against my citrus colored plaster kitchen wall
I wanted to share this lovely image with you - the flowers, the colors, the quality of light - for me it captures the essence of late summer - the bittersweet - the letting go of the last blossoms and embracing the new season, smell of woodsmoke, crisp air. Last night I had my usual twilight swim in the ocean and for the first time the water was COLD. Whew! It was beautiful, and I felt the new season approaching. As I floated in a beam of fading sunlight, a little group of Canada Geese landed near me in the water, ready to head south.
