Meet Me at the Gazebo...

The gazebo at the Martha Washington Inn was heavenly back in July when I visited. Perusing through my summer images I could not resist posting this lovely shot.

Barefoot Days

by Rachel Field

In the morning, very early,

That’s the time I love to go

Barefoot where the fern grows curly

And the grass is cool between each toe,

On a summer morning – O!

On a summer morning!

That is when the birds go by

Up the sunny slopes of air,

And each rose has a butterfly

Or a golden bee to wear;

And I am glad in every toe –

Such a summer morning – O!

Such a summer morning!

{SIGH} I miss summer. Mr. Frost visited last weekend killing all my beautiful flowers. Just sad, very sad. You posted a beautiful ode to summer. May she return with vigor.

Have a wonderful day surrounded by blessings!!!
