Summer solstice supreme . . .
Must have elevensies outside.
Hmm . . . what's lurking in the chair?
Why, it's Auburn Waves showing off her stitches.
Take time to stand and stare . . .
Then, finish that final section before the deadline.
Well . . .

First and Last
My garden is a melody that's sweetly sung in tune.
first Queen of Sweden
My garden is the Mary Rose that's newly sprung in June.
first Mary Rose
Ye flowery banks, how can ye blume sae fair?
first Winchester Cathedral
So fair art thou in spite of winter's blare.
first Julia Child
So, in defiance I shall grow thee in the sun,
first pumpkin plant
While the shifting sands o' life still sweetly run,
first lavender and aster
And the sultry suns of summer fame
Ripen berries to their fleeting flame.
* * *
With bending joints and drooping heads
The flowers begin to fail.
The colours sicken and fade to dead
And all grows wan and pale.
will make a man forget his woe;
will heighten all his joy;
will make the widow's heart to sing,
tho' the tear were in her eye.

Holy Smokes . . .

Julie at Needle Emporium is running a KAL
with the pattern
by Mam'sell Flo.
Tonight my AW wanted, for some reason, to be photographed around my home.
AW likes my new ironing board cover and wanted to show it off.
AW likes the book I'm reading,
It describes how the overuse of antibiotics is fueling our modern plagues.
AW likes Jerry Seinfeld's web series
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
AW likes the palette for an upcoming online course,
Birds in Watercolour.
But, AW likes to be with Bun the best of all.
What a silly post . . .
P.S. I've corrected the title of the pattern. July 4th must be closing in.
