Summer Day at West Beach

Stripes of blue.
A stripe of green.
Striped chairs.
Striped umbrellas.
A sip of Red Stripe.
No pinstripes.
Summer day at West Beach.

NE Coast

Up the coast.
Windswept dunes.
Protect Rosa rugosas.
Leading the way
To Cottages- no longer small.

2 China Cups

Two people
Share one sweet.
Each with a cup–
as strong as lead;
delicate as eggshells.
Will break if misused–
but hold liquid hot as fire,
and last for a lifetime.
20 years at least.
A chip or two.
But solid.

Pastel, 5x7, $100.

One of each flower

The little ones wanted to pick... "one of every single flower in the gardens, Nanna." "Just one," I agreed.
Into a red bowl on the 4th of July table went one of each flower:
1 pink petunia
1 purple petunia
1 heliotrope
1 chamomile
1 buttercup
1 daisy
1 red rose
1 pink rose
1 wild rose
1 lavender sprig
1 honeysuckle
1 rhododendron blossom
I think they cheated.
