Summer Colors


“Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape; but most of all, summer was Dill.”

โ€• Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

  4. Ahh.. I love your images, so colorful and the Lotus bud is a real beauty. Strawberries!!! Bowl of Summer is amazing! Here in Malta it’s too hot for the berries in the summer but in early spring and even in December you can buy sweet locally grown strawberries๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“

  13. Such a rich colourful harvest! Are pluots a hybrid of plums and apricots? I’ve not heard of them before.

  15. Another photography subject that you always do so well – food, especially fruits and veggies. I love how the green beans curve this way and that. The pluots photo is akin to an old painting with those deep, colors and the graceful lines of the leaves. The lotus bud and strawberries are perfection. It looks like you’re managing to keep from being totally heat-addled! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. Beautiful shots, and a real feast of colors. This time of year, it’s a real treat to both the eyes and nose, walking through a farmers’ market, with the fruit in all kinds of rich colors and just soaking in all the great fragrances. Even the humble ol’ green bean looks just great in your shot. ๐Ÿ™‚

The lotus steals the show, but I also really like the beans, which actually seem to be wriggling – and the pluots and leaves too. Wonderful! I enjoy your blog very much, Jane, and not least because of thew way you move through and around the genres. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. There’s just no comparison between summer fresh produce and that stuff we get in the winter that ripens off the vine as it travels across country. A little farther for us than you, I guess.. Love the pluots…wish I had a couple right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. We don’t have any kind of Famer’s Market this summer. Rather, the farmers are giving away their produce to churches, food pantries and the like. My sister, Ginny, her congregation has been receiving food boxes every week, loaded with carrots, potatoes, onions, apples, plums and more. Then my niece, her congregation received food products destined for restaurants, which included dairy products, yogurt, ice cream, etc. on a monthly basis. I suspect the economy may be in much worst shape than we know.

    Love those pluots. They are good.

    • Hi David, Sad about the lack of markets but I’m happy to read that food is not going to waste as much as in some areas. That is great news. It is tragic that the supply line from farms to restaurants couldn’t be modified to reach homes and they were dumping milk and plowing over crops.
      Well, glad you enjoyed these summer colors. Thank you so much. ๐Ÿ˜Š
