By the Light of the Silvery Moon…

Silver

Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy coat the white breasts peep
Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep;
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws, and silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream.

Grandma’s Helpers


Sean and Daisy were helping me water the potted plants but they decided it would be more fun to sprinkle each other…

Sadly summer’s winding down. I can’t believe it’s August already. The day’s are getting shorter and school registration is upon us. I wish summer could go on forever.
At least we haven’t had a shortage of humming birds this year. I had to add two more feeders to keep up (total of five now). I have two who are constantly fighting over all the feeders, and one that lets me know when his favorite feeder is empty. He flies right up to me, hovering only a foot from my face, chattering.
Hopefully I’ll get a picture of him soon. All of them are camera shy so far.
