A Beautiful Afternoon Break by the Water

Lake Leelanau Narrows, Looking South
I spent most of a day away from the bookstore working outdoors in the yard, but David took me for a late picnic lunch break in Lake Leelanau, where I sat on the dock, dangling my feet in the water and enjoying the beautiful waterlilies. Heaven!

I Never Tire of These Scenes


Once again, the dreaded pest, spotted knapweed, adds its lavender to the green and gold of August fields. Aesthetically, from a distance, if you don't think about what it does to native plants and, therefore, birds and other species, it's possible to see it as beautiful.






I love the shape of that lone tree out there, too.




These tranquil scenes are a peaceful beginning to my busy August days in my bookstore in town.
