Flowers of Summer

I wrote this poem in celebration of the wonderful selection of wildflowers nature displays in the Summer. I hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Flowers of Summer

Lady’s mantle sparkling with dew,

Speedwell shining an iridescent blue.

Shepherds purse speckled with white,

Lilac and gold, the tiny eyebright.

Gallant soldier and meadowsweet,

Honeysuckle balmy and sweet.

Slender thistle with purple blooms,

Yellow hues from hawkweed and brooms.

Colourful names with hues so bright

Light up our world with dazzling delight.

Exquisite fragrance fills the air,

An artist’s palette for all to share...

"Love Skye-Love Nature-Love Life" provides an artistic journey through the seasons, describing the natural beauty of the island through, prose, poetry, art, photographs and videos. I hope to give readers a taste of the Skye experience. I hope you enjoy the journey The Isle of Skye has dramatic mountains, wild glens and amazing seascapes; it offers a varied wilderness for free spirits. There is an abundance of hidden places full of native trees, wildflowers and wildlife to enjoy, in peace and tranquility. This sensational Island changes constantly through the seasons, with wild Atlantic storms, snowy mountains and balmy Summer nights with spectacular skies. The Summer wildflowers provide a colourful feast for insects, which feed the many species of songbirds, both native and Summer visitors.
