Nostalgia:

Noun
A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or Place with happy personal associations.
(Oxford Dictionary)


Fleeting Summer

Summer's short up North. Not long ago days got longer, sun warmed the land.
Spring flowers sprouted, buds and sticks shooting fresh light green.

Warming up



Sprouting



All of a sudden an endless Summer. Blossom white and pure. Flowers and Bees.
Endless days, bright nights, warmth of evening. Simpson skies.

Blossom Bee



Lush of Green



High Summer



Endless Skies



Warm Afternoon



Life Abundant



Endless Nights



Serenity



Ever so slowly, subtle change. Darker shade of green, old and dry. What lives withers and dies.
Summer's short up North, and now it bids Goodbye.

Dried



Fading



Spent



Empty Shell



Premonition



Hope



Johan

Wonderful series in keeping with the theme.

Now you need to continue it with fall colours, bare trees and the dreaded sn*w!

Thank you so much for the nice commentary Larry!
Yeah, now I've got nine months to complete the rest of the year. Kind of wish it was the opposite though :-).

Great shots and nice variety. I liked Lush of Green a lot, but I thought Serenity was the best. I like it's simplicity and complementary colors. Good job!
