Hummingbirds race in tandem to wake the world with their constant chatter. Feathered green bellies blending with the peony and oak and raspberry leaves as they come and go, back and forth, splashing color on shades of gray.
Heavy smoke-filled clouds veil the brilliance of summer skies for another day. Dark slate waters reflect multitude shades of gray skies. Barely visible Whale shaped islands outlined in dream-like vapor obscured on the horizon. Graceful gray gulls glide on the windy currents above crying out their dismay at every gust and twist.
