Photo Friday: Seeds of Change

So far, the summer is dry and hot.  Yes, it is still summer and will be for at least another month.  I notice how the plant-life is adapting to this near-fatal summer.  Mother nature sending her energy to the next generation:  fruit and berries in over-abundance.

Tiny fruit weighs down my crab apple’s branches. 

My Viburnum is ready for Christmas.


The evergreens send tiny green berries out into the world.

Prolific Buck-thorn! Please send Cardinals, Orchard Oriels and even the Grackles to feast on these berries.

Only the Basil gave up the ghost, despite my nurturing. I will miss you this winter, beloved basil.
