summer heat




has this summer gone particularly fast for you?

it feels like it has just whizzed by
school starts next week
some of our trees are tinged in red


summer afternoon 
summer afternoon
to me those have always been 
the two most beautiful words in the English language
Henry James



August has nearly flown
end of summer is here
the days are sunny and hot
nights cool and filled with stars
how quickly time goes by 





I almost wish we were butterflies 
and liv'd but three summer days
three such days with you I could fill with more delight 
than fifty common years could ever contain
John Keats


we grew sunflowers this year

some over 10 feet tall
they are absolutely delightful
I am planting more next year







deep summer 

is when laziness finds respectability
Sam Keen




walking the streets of Charleston 
in the late afternoons of August 
was like walking through gauze 
or inhaling damaged silk
Pat Conroy 




a perfect summer day
is when the sun is shining
the breeze is blowing
the birds are singing
... and the lawn mower is broken
James Dent




in summer
the song sings itself
William Carlos Williams



I love borders
August is the border between summer and autumn
it is the most beautiful month I know

twilight is the border between day and night
and the shore is the border between the sea and land
the border is longing

when both have fallen in love but still haven't said anything

the border is to be on the way
it is the way 
that is the most important thing
Tove Jansson

Have the last word ma'm 
he said cheerfully
It's a lady's privilege.

..... wild child ..... . . . . . .





the phoenix hope
can wing her way through the desert skies
and still defying fortune's spite
revive from ashes and rise

♦♦ Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Enchanting as the desert wind 
                    ... bold . wild and fancy free



A bit Bohemian Gypsy and a tad Cowgirl Western

in riding a horse
we borrow freedom

>.. Helen Thompson



Infused with Gypsy Cowgirl Spirit 
          this little bag may be small 
 but it is dynamically FaBulous!! 
 free spirited .. mixed with a earthy elegance.

summer whites


warm summer days
picnics in the park
walks along the lake
fun strappy sandals
sundresses
and white linen






yours is the light by which my spirit's born

you are my sun 
... my moon ... 
and all my stars
♦. E.E. Cummings



She is mine own,

And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.

♦♦ William Shakespeare 




any plans for you
in this delightful time of year?
