MIDSUMMER DAYS

After a month of enjoyable family activities, a gathering, wedding, and many visits, and a short journey to my native country with my older sister, I am getting back into a routine of writing my blog, the inspiration is slow in coming but I don’t worry about that, I took so many photos over the past few weeks that I can fall back on those. Photos about a visit to Lier, Belgium, a walk in the forest with some of my mum’s great grandchildren, the large family gathering, my sister Meave’s and my sister Josefine’s gardens, a visit to the garden of my brother Brian and Mia, all very lush and beautiful, and many more. Meanwhile the solstice has come and gone, and my garden is totally overgrown because of neglect, but the beans and peas are doing very well. The next few weeks it will be hard work getting everything under control and planting out more peas and leeks, all stuff to look forward to. I hope that of all my friends and followers everyone is well and enjoying this summer, I for one am glad to be back to blogging and to reading everyone’s blog entries. Blessings to all.

I WANDERED LONELY AS A CLOUD

I picked a nice bunch of Daffodils in the garden yesterday, and they opened up during the night in the warm room.  There is a slight scent coming from them, some are doubles, only one is a single Daffodil.  Looking at them here from where I am sitting, and enjoying their beauty, I am thinking of planting some more of them for next spring!  I thought I’d share part of one of my favourite Wordsworth poems;  “I wandered lonely as a cloud”

“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”
William Wordsworth
