August – Summer’s Queen
‘Fairest of Months! ripe Summer’s Queen The hey-day of the year with robes that gleam with sunny sheen, Sweet August doth appear.’ ~ R. Combe Miller
I found this cheerful poem In the book ‘The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady’
Goldenrod – Summer’s Queen!!
Upon reflection: do you like August? I would have to say that summer over all is not my favorite season of the year. The month of July and August I would be quick to say – NO Hot humid Hot!! But……upon further reflection, My Birthday is this month, along with My daughter, granddaughter, Bethany and Tasha Tudor. And when I’m not in the south August can be rather pleasant on some days. Blueberries are ripe in Maine, beautiful wild flowers in the north-east, the wonderful farmers markers….. Do you like August”?
