June 30 Haiku

painted fern

heat breaks in clouds
showering the painted fern;
cool of the day

Isn't it great how our minds work? Just the image/thought of ferns brings cool to mind, even if we see a picture that looks sunny (or maybe it's just the flash). I love your middle line!

Hey, Clouds, long time no visit. I love this photo - we used to have ferns just like this in our yard, but they didn't survive. Looking at this photo makes me want to go find some more to plant.

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer!

Wow - I just fell upon your blog when I was looking for a review of Jeanne DuPrau's Prophet of Yonwood. I am a Canadian librarian and I review books for a Canadian book wholesaler called Whitehots. Now I am retired but I still seek out the really good books for any age. I went to Ethiopia when I retired, as a volunteer librarian, and did a LOT of interesting things. Now I would like to do a blog in the same vein as YOUR Blog. I very much enjoy it. Looks perhaps a bit too complicated for me to do tho'

Thanks Laura! I adore ferns. I love how they smell and I love everything about their graceful fronds. I have a shady yard and I wish I could get more to grow. Most of what I've tried to plant haven't made it past a few summers. This one was here when we came, and although it isn't in a good position I haven't tried to move it because I am afraid to disturb it's seeming contentment.

Third Mom - great to see you here! I am so bad at commenting on blogs these days - but I am still reading yours!

Shirley - That sounds like a lot of fascinating adventures you have had! I am sure you would do a great blog. It's not that hard to get started and you can make it whatever you want or have time for... Just reviews of the books you're interested in to start with. One step at a time and you'll discover new excitement every day. Bloggers are great company. Come back and give us a link when you start your blog.
