Greene County, Virginia

It's high summer here in central Virginia. The County Fair is over and the newspaper is filling up with back-to-school advertising. Corn flowers are blooming along the back roads. In the fields Goldenrod and Queen Anne's Lace glow in the late afternoon sun. Soon the trees, so lush and green now, will look dusty and worn. The summer haze will begin to lift from the Blue Ridge.

It's high summer here in central Virginia, but all at once, autumn seems possible.


  1. I know many folks consider the Mimosa an invasive species and therefore one to be removed, but its blooms are lovely.

    1. I have always liked mimosa--as you say the blooms are lovely and there is an oriental lacy quality to the leaves that I like.
