August dew ushers
I spotted these flowering Mullein tips this morning. From a distance they look like a splash of gold. It has felt like a second spring around here lately. Sprouts of green grass are emerging from the brown carpet, small flowers are blooming where growth had halted in the dry heat, and seeds I recently planted are sending up shoots. Just a few rains have helped, and my personal theory is that cooler nights releasing moisture from the hot daytime air make a big difference for plants. Our mornings are very dewy.
I’m linking to TJ’s Household Haiku: Gold. TJ Paris, host of this weekly event, provides an open-ended haiku prompt including a word and photo. This week’s photo is a beautiful golden canola field in Australia. Everyone is welcome to join in.
TJ Paris is also founder and facilitator of the new Haiku Hub, a community of bloggers who enjoy writing and reading haiku.
