Letting Summer Out For A While

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Honeybee And Ironweed 83019” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Outside my window is cold and wet. The recent snow only lasted long enough to delay travel and make everything muddy. So I turned to the window in my hand. The one that shows the past and allows me to chose the season that wish to view. I scrolled through the days, weeks and months that were stored in the little black time machine in my hand until I found the one that made me feel warm. As I gaze into the image I can hear the buzz of tiny wings grooming each purple blossom and filling the air with a sweet aroma. Waves of heat emanate from the nearby parking lot as large soaring birds catch the thermals rising from the city. As I mentally step through the window the world around me becomes green and alive and for a few moments it’s Sumner again. The howling winds of winter are replaced with music coming from the open windows of the passing cars. I can feel the soft grass tickle my sandaled feet as approach the purple bloom in an attempt to observe the honeybee at work. She pays no attention to the giant hovering over her as she works. I carefully move the lens into place and “bottle up” the time so that on a cold winter day like today I can let Summer out to play for just a little while.

  1. Thank you for letting summer out for a little while! Lovely, vibrant purple definitely has a warming effect on a cold winter’s day. Maybe you should let summer out again soon ❤

    1. Thank you very much Frances ❤ I tend to hold back a few images that I take in the summer just for that purpose so there will definitely be more. The winter here is more muddy than white most of time and the opportunity for a classic winter photo can be hard to come by. So when you've promised to give a new photo every day you have to hold back a few.
