#531: Escape to Lily Pond

The summer has barely begun.
We are already sneaking off to the Lily Pond
to escape the crowds.
Scoping out a picnic site.

The cedar grove is taken…

This tree will do.

Cinnamon fern unfurls only in spring but
We’ll be back again and again,

to watch apple blossoms turn to fruit.
And grape vines yield grapes.

Thorny bushes, blackberries.

And the high-bush blueberries, visions of thieves.

Wally wishes she could come.
