3 August


pots of geranium





once there was a

not very large-ish porch

on the second floor

of the big green house

at the edge of the sea

on a rather tiny island
~
on this porch there was

a round wicker table for dining alfresco

gingery oatmeal and ambrosia tea

the sun rising over the Atlantic

hazy and orange and big and round

 gulls calling to one another at the very crack of dawn

lobster boats and fishing boats headed out for an afternoon


 and everywhere, everywhere, little pots of geranium



the good -the weather cooled off quite a bit last night and we had a lovely night for sleeping

the random -Plum Island, MA now has its own wine...

which is not, as you might have thought, a plum wine

and is, as you might  not have thought, quite atrocious!

the bottle is wonderful and fun though

and I have saved two of them for candle holders

  13. Your word pictures are so charming and the photo collage the perfect accent. Just lovely and evocative.... Makes me long to be at the Coast. The wine part made me laugh! We've tried a few local wines about which we have said 'well, the label is interesting'!

  14. Lovely little story, precious to read, and your last photo is stunning and reminds me of a painting of a lighthouse I've seen!

  15. After a week's vacation, there I was this morning cutting off the dead flowers and yellowed leaves of my numerous pots of geraniums and appreciating what a tough little plant they are to soldier on in heat and without water at times. My neighbour kept an eye on them but I knew they'd survive with some neglect.
    A nice story, especially the ambrosia tea. :-)
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
