August Is For . . .


August is for delicious raspberry tart

and a gift of blueberries from my neighbor's garden


which made for the best muffins,


August is for visits to the Japanese garden

on a hot hot day when only the fish was cool

and for sipping cool drinks by the river


August is for sleepy visiting granddaughters

for bicycle rides

and pretty little things lying around

and, of course, August is when the kitchen sink is full of sticky pans

and fresh jam lines up on the window sill

August is also for a return trip to Belgium but that's another posting.

August is for visiting your wonderful mother who treats you and your family (sleepy daughters included...) to wonderful meals and relaxing, joyful days and sends you home with fresh jelly made from the raspberries in her garden! Merci Maman!
