Dilly Dilly




Sheared and Sheaved

Come deep December
when I slide out the drawers,
pull open closet doors,
or spread clean linens
on the bed,
I will remember the sweetness
of this Summer Saturday.

best, e.

Ah, Ellen, the aroma almost comes off the screen. Your pictures and words are like a balm. Thank you.

I can smell it now. Lovely lavender!

There is a Lavender Festival going on where one of my blogging friends lives (also in Washington State). It sounds divine.

Forget Heaney, when is Ellen going to publish some poetry?

One of my favourite scents,and as it happens colours. The daft thing is we have none in out garden. I will have to rectify that.
