Saturday Snapshot - Summer on the Window Sill

Summer is opening, lush and fragrant like an old fashioned peony in an exuberant garden.

As I take a few moments to appreciate the beauty of June,

I see golden sunlight easing through green leaves, through a large freshly washed window.

I hear birds outside the window, and indoors, I hear the shuffling and scuffling of five dogs; our own two, and the three belonging to our weekend guests.

I smell the mingled aromas of the peonies on the window sill and of lemon and garlic as dinner is prepared.

I taste tea, just simple English Breakfast Black tea, unsweetened.  I'm sipping a cup as I wait for our guests to return from their boating adventure out on one of our beautiful inland seas.

I feel relaxed.  I picked strawberries while our guests were away and tended the gardens.  I hung a little laundry on the line and took care of a large crew of dogs.  I am ready for the family to return.

Dogs are barking like mad.  Our guests must have pulled up the driveway!

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you good company.
