Early Summer


Goodness! Is it really over a month since I last wrote here?

Today the sun is shining! It is a wonderful day; the sun is hot, there is a fresh breeze and I have put the garden parasol up to keep us from burning!

As we returned from our short morning walk, I took a photograph (above) of the new front border. These flowers remind me of the coast, which we have not visited in months! The pandemic has kept us close to home, but now that restrictions have eased we must travel to the coast again. I promise to take some photos.

All morning I have tried to complete a summer verse and have arrived at the following lines:

(early summer)

Thrift —

Rose-pink clusters,

A reminder of the coast.

These flowers are common on the coast and already I’m planning a walk. Can’t wait!

See you again soon!
