Rushes raising elegantly from the cool waters covered by water lilies.
Reaching towards the sky in search of light.
Water lilies wait for middle summer to show their hidden treasures below.
With tiny tadpoles that grow into a brilliantly green Southern Leopard Frogs.
Sitting on the muddy banks of the lake, hoping for a bug to fly closely by.
The Orchard Oriole sings boldly with his jumbled song.
Enjoying the sweet nectar of a Trumpet Vine.
And hidden in the woods is the brilliantly colored Summer Tanager.
With a lilting tune that creates a forest symphony.
Oh the glorious sights and sounds of nature.
