Watch the soothing sun stretch warm
Limbs from downy clouds like galloping
Unicorns across misty lawns.
Singing Skylarks wistfully twist
High into the watery distance,
As eaves of Barley corn kiss.
Where I live in the little village of Cople, Bedfordshire, I can go out of my garden gate with my two Border Collies and walk for miles along footpaths and bridleways which take me through fields of Barley, peas and beans and many more crops. The Barley is soon to be harvested but looks stunning at the moment, particularly in the early morning and evening light. I love to hear the corn popping in the heat. What do you love about summer? 🙂
Gorgeous lighting. My favorite things about summer are lake swimming and drinking tea out in the garden while reading a lovely book. You live in a wonderful place.

Thank you Wendy. I wake up each day grateful for living here, it is lovely. You also live in a stunning place. Best wishes. X:-)
I think I’d like lake swimming too! I also love to snuggle up on a garden seat reading with a cup of tea when my dogs will let me! 🙂

Thank you Brenda. I love looking dreamily at the clouds. 🙂
Me, too. Even better, gazing at the stars. 🙂
Unfortunately it was cloudy when we had a meteor shower recently, but I knew it was there and being enjoyed! 🙂
Only one night was perfect for stargazing, and my daughter wouldn’t go. The rest of the time, we tried, but it was too hazy. At least my eldest son got to go, and the other two will have to wait for another year. 🙂
It’s great that he enjoyed it. 🙂
He did. Made the other two quite jealous. 🙂 I still remember the one night of my life where I felt like I could see the whole milky way. Ahhh.
What a beautiful post to start the day with, thank you! Johanna
