|Resting after first flight|
|Waiting for the next visitor|
Summer is in full bloom. Monarch butterflies keep visiting the milkweed, so we've been careful not to disturb either caterpillars or chrysalis. Tomatoes are starting to come in, but the squash have succumbed alternately to gophers and powdery mildew. The eggplant look good, though.
I've not been writing much, but find it's again my turn to till the soil in the imaginary garden. Hopefully we'll plant seeds to flourish rather than wilt.
Here is the word list, plucked one from each of the last ten prompts here in IGWRT.
fresh, burst, defy, chain, struck, forward, exchange, customary, prefer, close
There's no particular theme; free associate at your leisure.
If you're new or it's been a while, here's the process: please select at least three words and pen a new poem, add it to Mr. Linky below, and of course we ask that you pay a visit to, and comment on, each of the other contributions. If you come by early, please return later.
(All photos taken in my garden over the past few weeks.)
Thanks for coming by, and I look forward to seeing what blooms.
