Beautiful Blanket of July

Beautiful blanket of July
Sunflower, lily and butter-fly
Queen Ann’s lace in the wild hedge-row
Wheat fields rippling with golden flow

Beautiful blanket of July
Quilt beneath an azure sky
Locust and cricket serenade
Sweet-tea on throws of dappled shade

Beautiful blanket of July
Sultry minuet sparkling by
Of bare toes skimming clover-mead
Of fair rose dripping petals, red

Beautiful blanket of July
Heavenly splendor pleases the eye
Summer perfection pinned to the sky
Oh, beautiful blanket of July

  1. Oh Janet...I love this. And I love the quilt. Beautiful. Can I share this?

  2. Are these all your photographs? Wow!

  3. Yes, I was 'trigger' happy on Sunday as I laid in the back yard...and a few are taken out in the fields.

    Share anything you like!

    Thank-you for your visit and your encouraging words. See you soon.
