“Summer Breeze, Makes Me Feel Fine”
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
– John Lubbock
What can I say? Wildflowers in a gentle summer breeze, what can be better? This group of Yellow Coneflowers, springing from a sea of Wild Bergamot on a clear, hot summer day, is about as peaceful as it gets and brings back to mind the Seals and Crofts song, “Summer Breeze.” Though there is no “jasmine in bloom” in this scene, the feeling is about the same.
The puffy clouds in the background are simply the icing on the cake ,in this simple composition. A sweet, sweet memory of summer to look back to when the mercury drops.

So whimsical! I just love this shot!!
Thank you. A brief ‘moment’ of my day, taking a break from work.
Don’t you love when magic happens when you least expect it!
Love the way you captured the movement of the petals.
The slight breeze helped with that.
I love the colours in this. It is quintessential summer 🙂
Thanks Joanne, it was an impromptu shot, made by squatting low and shooting up to the coneflowers.
That’s a poetic shot.
Thank you. It really did capture the day nicely 🙂
I love the song title, Ed. This was a great shout out to Seals and Croft. 🙂 The flowers are always sensational here. I was playing catch up today! 🌻💮
