Saint Barnabas Day ~ June 11th

Some June Mottoes

“A dripping June keeps all in tune.”

“June damp and warm
Does the farmer no harm”

“St. Barnabas, mow your first grass.”

…the cloudless sky


“A cloudless sky; a world of heather,
Purple of foxglove, yellow of broom;
We two among it, wading together;
Shaking out honey, treading perfume.
Crowds of bees are giddy with clover,
Crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet,
Crowds of larks at their matins hang over,
Thanking the Lord for a life so sweet.”
~ Jean Ingelow

Now for my poetic license with these photos to go with this fun poem. Not the exact plants but mostly the right color….


…a world of heather


…purple of foxglove


…yellow of broom


…crowds of bees are giddy with clover


…crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet


…Thanking the Lord for a life so sweet!

Have a wonderful St. Barney Day and don’t forget to mow your lawn…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.
