Mandy, thank you for your visit. I tried to find this week's prompt from One Single Impression but could not locate it on the site. It seems just to go from Resolve to the list of upcoming prompts with nothing for the week commencing 31 August.

How did YOU know it was "spectacle"?

Yes it has been a time for sectacles-and where has it gone so quick?!
Thank you for sharing this.

Yes, summer fesivals, and then on to fall fairs. We do enjoy celebrating, don't we?

andrée said...

yes we do and I only wish it was longer than a month and a half! It was so short!

Raven said...

Yes indeed, and isn't it grand! Nice picture and poem. I agree with others that summer (especially this year - we seem to have skipped over August her on the East Coast) goes all to quick, but luckily there are Fall, Winter and spectacles to enjoy too.

Sadly we haven't had the weather for many spectacles in the UK this year.
But nicely done.

i enjoyed how you took a word that is usually associated with one person in the spotlight & brought a sense of community to it

Nice Mandy. Excellent reminder of how "let it all hang out" we can be in summer sun.
