Knee Deep In June





Tell you what I like the best --
'Long about knee-deep in June,
'Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, -- some afternoon
Like to jes' git out and rest,
And not work at nothin' else!"

~ James Witcomb Riley : Knee Deep in June

You have a lovely porch. I could spend some time there.

I feel like we started "real" summer in Michigan. You got a head start...

Your porch is so inviting. And such beautiful scenery to go along with it! You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Working at resting.... what a lovely idea. These busy days
one has to make an appointment to rest oneself. Your porch
is a wonderfully inviting nod to the whole idea.
