Reflections On A Summer's Day

To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.

I've had a beautiful change of scenery - and enjoyed some most precious times of "sitting"! Your picture here makes me long for more :)

Amen to Jane's words! I couldn't agree more, especially when it's hot and humid. The picture you've posted is so tranquil and inviting, too.

I once heard reference made to "the sanctuary of shade" and it is certain that for everyone on hot days. Thanks be to God for the blessing of shade!

Hugs!

Your photos make me catch my breath. I go to your blog for a peace-reset during my day sometimes.

Jane Austen was so right and today as I am ending my visit with my friend here in Pennsylvania, we added your lemonade, and that also made a perfect refreshment...

Looks like a lovely spot to just sit and while away a few hours.

She has a way with the words and you have a way with putting them together with the photos. I love that scene Jo, such an idyllic photo.
