A Bit of Last Summer

I’ve been working on my photography portfolio and wading through thousands (yes, thousands) of images, deleting most and working on a few. This is one of the photos that caught my eye, I think because the leaves of the plant seem almost like a shadow.

It’s nice to be going through summer photos right now.  I am trying to take each day as it comes, and appreciate February as it is, but I do admit my heart and soul are waiting for warmer weather and the appearance of wildflowers and color again.

The photo of the clover was taken last summer in Door County, one of my favorite places in Wisconsin, and where I go when I want to get away.
