Summer Crown


Evidence of Summer Abound
when she knits her summer crown

Weave of petal, stem, and leaf
Magical land of make believe

Queen for a minute, an hour, a day
Letting the day unfold as it may

In sunflower castles, she rules her land
creating more lovelies with her hands

And when the crown does wilt away
She’ll knit again, another day.


Get inspired for summer and check out the porch swings at Hooked on Houses with the amazingly creative Juila!


Down home friends and what they say...

How lovely! I used to make flower crowns like that when I was little from the clover that grew in our yard. This brings back memories!

Hope you’re having a beautiful weekend, Shawn! :-)
