Photographers and Poets

Nature's Summer Time Beauty

Saturday post and it's photographers and poets. Above is a photo of one of the lanterns downtown on Cape Ann MA decorated with a beautiful hanging plant.

Below the photo is an awesome cacti in a clay bowl that now decorates my dining room table. Because my house has major southern exposure cacti seem to grow the best here.

We are sharing today with:

Weekend Blog Hop
Your Sunday Best

Haiku that I wrote at a writing workshop at the Manchester Library this morning, where we had fifteen minutes to just write anything we wanted to, is below this next photo.

One of my Birthday Presents from son, Sean


writing poetry, ah
delightful to be with friends
expressing thoughts, ah.

several writers here
what shall I write on blank page
words, words, and more words.

library volumes
silent speaking words to all
what a gift today.

Hope you enjoy the variety of blog links today and on Sunday. With Sunday Sketchers and Post Cards from Paradise coming on Sunday.

Have a Happy and Wonderful Weekend.

Hugs and namaste,


We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ ^_^

  1. Beautiful photos. Have a super week.

  2. That's a wonderful bowl of succulents! That was a thoughtful gift! Happy Birthday!

  3. Love that lamp post with the flowers. So very pretty. Your cactus is lovely! As is your Haiku!

  4. I love the Haiku (Haikus?)!

    PS Thank you for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate the healing energy and kind words. :)

  5. Beautiful shots - love those cacti, mine are pretty poor specimens although as I don't really know what I'm meant to do to them that's probably why.

    Am in awe of your instant haiku writing - my mind goes blank if I try to force it to write poetry.

  6. Hello Carol
    Great pictures you show.
    Wishing you a good weekend :)

    Wonderful bowl of succulent plants! All the different textures make a great combination.
