Summer Ramblings - Purple Photos

Photos taken during June in the Southern Tier of upstate New York, by my guest photographer.
Purple vetch.


A fireweed closeup.

Flowering raspberry (which is not a raspberry)

This more far-away shot of the flowering raspberry shows the tell tale maple like leaves. But, it isn't a maple, either.

Alas, June is almost over.  We had some nasty (for us) weather yesterday. 

This is what it looked like in downtown Binghamton during the storm. (I'll spare you the picture of the dead frog. )

Today is dawning still overcast.  But it's a far cry from the fatal flooding that has hit a lot of our state of West Virginia.

Weather gone wild. Where will the wild weather hit next?


  1. I can't remember the last time my neighborhood had rain. I cannot keep up with watering and plants are suffering.

    1. We've had storms the last couple of days. I hope your drought turns around soon - and not dramatically.

  2. These are lovely. Thanks for sharing them.

    1. At the beach, admiring the itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini.

  4. DON'T ASK THAT! It's like saying the ER is having a quiet night. Or: what else could go wrong? Let's focus on the nice weather that everyone is going to have, okay?

  5. It been plenty hot last few days of June.
    Coffee is on
