Despite the fall decorations arriving early this year in the stores, it is just now midsummer.
Nothing could portray midsummer more beautifully than the little teacup I won last week in a giveaway by Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is. The butterflies and bee dance across my cup...
and across the saucer too.
“Are you sure
that we are awake? It seems, to me
that yet we sleep, we dream."
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
The flowers are from my garden, hyssop and snapdragon. Like my new bonsai scissors?
They are very sharp, perfect for cuttings from the garden.
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."
