Fats here.

I’m up this week for Frizz’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter tagged is G and I have “greenery” for you today. I haven’t really been out and about lately so I’ll share photos I took at Odell Lake two months ago, with a little bit of poetry.

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

— Robert Frost

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.

— George Gordon Byron

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

    but Nature more.”
    P.S.:
    that’s typical American dream, isn’t it? And the European adore the big cities and skyscrapers. If you have winter, you long for summer, if it is summer, you demand winter.
