Wednesday evening, - the middle of the last week in June,
and it's been such a lovely month.
We are catching up with rain showers, and mostly they happen at night,
The plants and flowers get watered, and they are fresh and delightful
for one to enjoy in the daytime.
A week ago there was not much in bloom
but suddenly the lilies have all opened their lovely petals
and the yellow daisies are in fierce competition
with the Shastas.
Out front the orange daylilies wave in the breeze
and do a great job hiding the fact
that the white picket fence is badly in need
The Bee Balm toss their scarlet heads,
and soon the barn flowers will be wildly yellow.
Even now they have grown tall and bush so our privacy
is quite assured.
A mama deer has taken up residence with her little one
in the shrubs that line the creek on the other side
of the meadow.
We don't see her often, but it is a great pleasure
when we do!
When we get tired of weaving Callie and Bruce and I sit outside with a book
and a glass of lemonade.
We gather a small vase of the flowers Charles loved
to share beside him...
Bruce explores the garden, but Callie disappears into the greenery...
The other day I called her and she came out with a poor wee mouse in her mouth
so I guess she returns to the wild when she burrows....
Life is good!
Lavender scent is lovely...
I heard a nighthawk call last night...
The raspberries will soon be ready to gather for breakfast...
I am all ready to wind a new warp...
I waken at five, - ready for a new day (tho' I bury myself in the blankets until six!)
I see my children often, and lovingly....
Life is good.
(oh, have I said that already???)
