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

Another verse that you have posted that is perfect - It is exactly what June is! I am here in eastern Tennessee for a week, and I hope it's a lovely day and weekend where you are - rain here this morning, but that is okay, I am not here for the weather! ❤

A beautiful porch. June was made for sitting on porches and drinking ice tea.

Your porch is just beautiful. I love that little poem. The words are exactly right.
