late afternoon

late afternoon
on a warm fall day
people of all ages
at the market
time for supper

Mentink’s Market Piggly Wiggly – Oostburg, Wisconsin

We bought these flowers at Mentink’s Market in July.

Poem and Photos

early Fall
some beginnings
of new colors

and yet with
the dead ash trees
away from the roads

it looks like a later time
other years when
some leaves
have fallen

corn growing tall
in some fields
and the next field
fallow this year

times of rest
and then new beginnings

With thanks to all who did so much tree work this year, from yards to keeping power lines clear.

Karl took this photo in July, of the begonia and ash tree stump. The front yard had a new look this year.

The hosta flowers were especially beautiful this year.

By the time the weather is summer-warm here, by Lake Michigan, plants are on sale. We bought the mandevilla plant at The Home Depot in Kohler, Wisconsin. New for me this year.

Karl took photos by the small creek at the park. This is a poem I wrote on March 23, 2019.

snow melt in town
some piles of snow
in the park
creek running clear
and can see the stones
at the bottom
blue sky background
for the trees

Karl took this photo on March 31, 2019.
