So I've managed to develop a nasty eye infection.
(don't worry, I am staying home & not spreading germs).
It seems that time indeed,
does march on, even though you are
spending all your time asleep.
Calendar pages did not turn themselves
today. However, it has become June
in spite of my interpretation of Rip van winkle.
The Knitting Companion was a very
good sport today ~ and slept close by.

As i write this, the
Knitting Companion is having
a little snooze beside me.
Here is a litle garden update.

are providing a lush show of tiny little
The peonies will be in flower soon.
who knows if the moon's
who knows if the moon's
a baloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky--filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should
get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their baloon,
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people
than houses and steeples and clouds:
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited,where
in love and flowers pick themselves

Thank you to everyone for all of your comments.
"Pomes All Sizes" is one of my favourite books,
I'm glad to hear it's on someone else's reading
table these days as well.
I've been a fan of e.e. cummings for years.
"who knows if the moon's
is one of my favourite cumming's poems.
Black and white companion boys:
are truly brothers from the same litter.
Their mom was black & their dad was white.
Here are some overdue
photos from last week's visit
from the Knitting Companion's
He is a very cuddly boy.
You can click on the photos if
you'd like to see them larger.
Glad to be
back home from Chicago. i attended a conference,
it was terrific. The city was busy, hot and lively.
Coming home, the Knitting Companion and i have
found the garden to be exponentially more lush
than only a week ago. All that rain certainly has
had a big effect. On top of that, today it's very hot.
Certainly quite a change from the weather of the past
below is a view of the Knitting Companion
in the garden from just two weeks ago:
