“Summer Breeze, Makes Me Feel Fine”

“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.

    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! 🌻💮
