So many daylilies, we need to clear the path, which means enough for a bouquet.  This photo is from July 2016.

always beauty

after the leaves fall
and the days grow short
holiday lights begin

small town main streets
and country roads

November skies and fields
have a stark and simple
beauty

when winter settles in
for a long time
after Christmas

the light in January
is already changed
from now

Karl and I went to The Home Depot in Kohler, Wisconsin this week.  We saw seagulls in a field, and also walked around the park in Oostburg.
