Suddenly..there I was...

Listen to the music to go with this post....

In the midst of Summer...

How did I get here....Summer hasn't been very summer-ish....Still ,we are in the midst of it...and what did we gather so far...

For me to much to even count...I best describe it with the picture above....my arms full of beauty. And still gathering more..

Just when I start thinking ..this is enough...this will do....a new surprise comes my way...Its the best of Summers ever..(and I'm not talking about the weather)

Dawning of amber and amethyst eves;
Soft in the south wind the laughter of leaves;
Breath of the poppy and death of the rose,
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes!

Dapple on cheek of the apple and plum;
Honey bees droning a die-away hum;
Swales in shimmer and dales in a doze,
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes!

Darting of dragon fly, flutter of moth;
Barley in window and wheat in the swath;
Hush song and thrush song!--the mother bird knows!
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes!

Moonlight and noonlight all glamour and glean;
Hillside and rillside a thrall to a dream;
Capture the rapture before the days close
,-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes!

--Clinton Scollard (1860-1932

Have yourself a lovely midsummer day....wishing you romance and beauty...Capture the rapture..

I capture the rapture EVERY TIME I come here....then I go off into my world and space and capture even more.

The photos tell all dearest heart; your words speak of a sparkle of life that has come and will give so much joy. I KNOW you are enjoying it all!

I will be gone and perhaps away from my computer until Tuesday....going to a wedding in the nearby state of Wisconsin to see two lives start their journey of wonder.

Hugs to you dearest Dutchess! Nita
