Kaleidoscope of Green




Stalks of corn deep in hue reaching up to the clouds in the clear, blue sky...


The variegated shades of ivy reminiscent of a castle wall...


Brilliant chartreuse in a flower box highlighting the pink blossoms that surround it. Contrasting against the old window completing the vignette...

The season of Summer relinquishing her beauty for us to behold...

A beautiful post - I love the field of towering corn and the window box is delightful. It does feel that summer is already on the cusp and a new season waits in the wings...

Ontario in summertime - so green and lush. I understand that you've had a lot of rain this summer, while we're just having the first rain since early June. I sometimes miss the green of an Ontario summer - especially the cornfields. Soon you'll be able to stop at a roadside stand to pick up a big bag of sweet corn for dinner....yummy!
