My early morning walk shared some late summer bloomers. The brilliant yellow of goldenrod captured my attention. No bird sounds—only a chorus of crickets greeted me.

Goldenrod appears in late summer, so this plant denotes the kigo or season word. It’s local to my area in Michigan. See how easy it is to create your own season words?

        1. It does, so much. You know WP.com with two blogs is totally different than it used to be. Each blog shares the same email, but you don’t get your follower totals from the other blog. Also, our social media accounts don’t add to our follower counts anymore. I think that’s strange.
