Their Beauty

I am loving these words from Mary Oliver and having fun creating some word art from them.
The trees outside are indeed thick and lush with green leaves, and they do flutter their beauty at you to call you over. Kind of like a kid showing you their tricks.

Put on Your Bonnets

There is a new Andrew Davies production coming to PBS in the future, (think Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth's Pride and Prejudice), that I have really high hopes for. It is after all my favorite book and it needs to be well done to erase the 2012 version from my mind (this could have been so amazing, but it fell short). Here are the latest publicity stills from the upcoming Les Miz.
Looks to be a good season in the autumn of 2019, perhaps. PBS/BBC has also adapted Jane Austen's unfinished book, "Sandition," that is currently airing. So put your bonnets on and get ready for some serious period film watching.

The offerings of summer are the little beauties we can only dream about in the mid-winter cold. Now they are abundant and everywhere you look. Summer begs us to rest, to see what's out there and not just pass it by.
To pick flowers and make bouquets.
To gaze at the warm-blue ceiling-sky.
To feel soft grass between bare toes.
None of it is wasted or idle,
In fact, it is necessary.
