Early Summer Garden Scenes

Early Summer collage

The feathery clouds, the woodland breezes, the meadow-lark in belated song and the lazy drone of the wandering bee. thee are the joys of midsummer. The sun is at its highest, the days the longest, enjoy the summer for soon it vanishes like a passing fragrance, but memories will outlast the autumn and winter. Former Curator Martha Crone
