As Summer Draws Down

First the camera has been found and so without further ado here are Jennie and Blanche:

They have been pretty good buddies till yesterday. Jennie likes to pull on Blanche's ears as a way to get her to go where she wants her to go ... but a lamb has delicate ears. Last night while tugging on Blanche's ears Jennie managed to nick a vein ... and there was blood everywhere. On the lamb ... on the dog ... on one of the other sheep. Everyone survived but now when Blanche sees Jennie coming she runs in the shed and shoves her head in the straw. Not all friendships are made to last I guess.
Resting on the porch
A morning glory has bloomed
Brilliant in the shade.

Oh, poor Blanche! But I have to admit I laughed at the picture in my head of her sticking her head into the straw!

Your haiku are so lovely! I really admire them. I happened across your blog by accident, and found myself just reading the haiku... I thought you might like to know. -Luke (
