Midsummer Night Itch
"Mosquito is out,
it's the end of the day;
she's humming and hunting
her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger
arrives on such wings
at sundown? I guess
it's the nature of things."
~ N. M. Boedecker,
Yes it is still raining here. It rains ...the sun comes out..it rains..
Everthing is washing away and my plants and bushes have had
way too much water. We planted six Oak Leaf Hydrangea this
Spring and they were growing beautifully. They had more
than doubled in size. Now they are all dead and I hope it
stops raining before I lose more of my bushes and plants.
The rain also produces a lot of mosquitos.( As in poem above.)
On to a lighter note. I love to crawl in bed with a cup
of tea and my back issues of Victoria magazine.
My teapot and teacup you have seen before in
a previous post but the plate is new. Well not new
but I just haven't shared it before. Andrea by

Have a lovely week.
