Finger Snap: Middle of June

Glimpse of downtown from an elevated train.

Another neighbor's picturesque yard design

Don't let the sun go down on me

Leaves up close and personal 

A sliver of sun brightens a block 

Our pride of color 

Muted color; a surprise bloom

Shocked to wake on a Sunday to see a sofa on a curb. 

Go Hawkeyes! 

Greens and lavenders, a pleasing combo 

Blooms too heavy for their stalks 
And in other news, my younger brother called me on Sunday to say, among other things, that he was sorry for stealing my car 40 years ago. I'm still processing he weight of the confession and contrition. While not quite the other shoe dropping it is something.
