Looking out to the harbour at Summerside from the boardwalk, one must look through the wildflowers in a number of areas this month. It makes for a rare view of the harbour, filtered through the wild colours and beauty of nature.
Queen Anne’s lace, whether in a meadow-like setting
or a few clumps here and there,
always catch the eye. Spent blooms close into basket shapes as the seeds form. The baskets have their own intricacy. Could a human hand create such beauty?
Goldenrod adds some of the yellow of its August glory to the scenes
as it pops up amid various coloured companions, including the purples of thistle.
Various grasses are tall and wave in the breeze,
reaching over the heads of most of the passers-by. Their height and uniformity make me stop and look.
Insects love the various wild blooms too and occasionally I capture them with the lens.
Meanwhile, the harbour has diamonds on its surface, the sun offering her best reflections as background.
Every time my husband and I visit the boardwalk, I photograph the same scenes. This month will bring much change to the area as the flowers set their seed. I am interested to see them.
