The day I took the photo from which this pen and ink evolved, was sunny and hot. I can still hear the bees lazily buzzing in the lavender bush, the fragrance of the berries, and AH, the rich taste of the ripe fruit.
I shared a bite with the Berry Faery, you know. She thought they were tasty, too.
I don't have the original photo, due to a sad loss of data back then.
This will be a bitter sweet weekend--another holiday--July Fourth, without my Beloved. It is hard to believe he has been gone 18 months already. Yet, God is good and there is joy to be found.
Have a lovely weekend, dear Friends, Happy Paint Party Friday, and to those of you who are here in the United States, Happy Fourth of July!
