A token Midsummer's Day offering for the wildlife who visit here -- red and white alpine strawberries on a bark trencher, dropped off by our maple tree during the last rainstorm. The white berries are sweet but not quite equal to the red.
On the other side of the fence between a neighbor and us. The more aged and weathered, the more beautiful this tree becomes.
One might assume the tree is dead, but to the contrary, she is teaming with life inside and outside.
The beginning of a woven midsummer's day cloth, about 4" square.
A Midsummer's Eve offering for the spirits -- things I would like if I was a faery...cottonwood fluff, strips of plant-dyed cloth, shiny foil...actually the same things I like as a human!
When the dogs and I walked into the park near the creek earlier today, hundreds of dragonflies greeted us. Magic is afoot. Happy Midsummer's Day to you. xx
