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

Had the best strawberries the other day. Summer and Wimbledon must be on their way.

Everything is looking lovely in your garden and I especially like the Longfellow poem from your last posting, it makes me think of my father scything the long grass in the orchard when I was a child.

I love that line, "knee-deep in June". Now you have a porch I would love to sit on and look out across your beautiful yard.

I always enjoy seeing your porch with hanging ferns. It makes such a pleasant place to be.
