As Spring draws to a close

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.
~Bern Williams~


On a warm June evening, as the sun dips it's head behind the trees,
and the bull frogs croak their nightly chants,
I'm reminded of the translation of their song by my great grandmother.
Says one bull frog, "More room, more room."
And the other replies, "Can't have it, can't have it."

I hope wherever you are, you have a chance to enjoy a warm June evening,
preferably with a chorus of bull frogs.

The content and the texture of this photo are superb. Our June here in Kentucky is sweltering already.

I am so in love with your barn shots and photos in general. And how cute are your Grandma's words!

I've been hearing frogs, but it's cold and windy here, down south...certainly your lovely image captures spring though, Andrea, with its slightly hazy air, and suggestion of abundance...

Deb said...

Beauty full. You should make a book of these barn shots.

Jackie said...

This shot is beautiful...frame worthy I'd say. We're full into summer here...upper 90's and heat indices into 100...whew...covered in cicadas.

I agree with Deb about making a book of these shots.

We have jumped into the hot blast of summer. Our frogs are singing, more rain, more rain.

Beautiful capture, great composition. Found you through Trendy Treasures. I just moved from a city in Southern California to 3 acres in rural PA. It is quite a change and we are loving it!

Thank you for the wish!! Yes, plenty of warm evenings here, along with the songs of bullfrogs. The only thing I wish we had were fireflies (we called them lightening bugs), do you have those? Could you send some of those down here, please?

Elena said...

What a dreamy pic. I love it!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Andrea, your photo and texture = simply perfect. Couldn't love it more! The bullfrogs' translation is also wonderful. I'd much rather hear the frogs than our cicadas singing here. Seriously, these bugs are getting quite obnoxious ;) -Tammy

Andrea, I love the croaking frogs! I've never heard that before and now I'll never forget it. Wonderful photo!

Jayme said...

I LOVE this post. Love. Love the the picture, love the quote, love the frogs croaking! June is everything that the world should be. I just picked a big bucket of strawberries by dawn's early light. It don't get no betta.
