The 'newness' of summer

Last Saturday, we had to run over to the garden center to buy a wisteria to plant by our new rose arbour which I showed your earlier. We drive along country roads through a wonderful little village called Fochterloo. This weekend, we stopped to watch a donkey with her little one grazing in a field by one of the farms. He was so adorable and was just as interested in watching me as I was in him!

That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~~

May I never grow up and tire of these kind of simple pleasures in life!

So, so precious! Are these the miniature Sicilian donkeys or regular sized ones? We have the Sicilian ones with the cross on their backs.
