Summer is Over [youtube.com]

That means less bugs, less plants, and less wildlife. I’ve still some bugs in my archives I’ll post them randomly! So don’t get surprised if you don’t see some wildlife as you were used to see in my blog :)

Also I’m trying to find new stuff! One of them is, I can say it, Mushrooms! Since Autumn is their season, I hope when the first rain falls To find many species =)
If not…WELL, later we will see! LOL :)


Storm clouds rush the shore
Ocean fills with tears
Life speeds up, time rolls by
Minutes measure up to years

The sun breaks through the clouds
Blinking briefly on the bay
Casting diamonds here and there
Just before it slips away


The last day of Summer
Drifts out on the wind
Never returning
Still it's not the end
It's just the last day of Summer
Wake up from the dream
Life goes on until it's gone
Night is never empty as it seems

As the shadows fall
Somewhere someone lights a fire
Dancing like a distant sun
Like a walker on a wire

As fragile as a flower
As mighty as a tidal wave
A prayer rises on the wind
A seagull cries as if to say

The last day of Summer
Drifts out on the wind
Never returning
Still it's not the end
It's just the last day of Summer
Wake up from the dream
Life goes on until it's gone
Night is never empty as it seems
Sunset has no hidden meaning
Only beauty, silent as time
Melting slowly into the sea
As stars like angels rise and shine

      Well said! I love the autumn as much as the summer (and the winter and the spring). The mushrooms as you said and the colours are so beautiful.

      I looks a great place. Lovely pics.
      I look forward to your fungi pictures. I love taking pictures of these too. I bet you will become an expert in identification of them.
