A saturated meadow,
Sun-shaped and jewel-small,
A circle scarcely wider
Than the trees around were tall;
Where winds were quite excluded,
And the air was stifling sweet
With the breath of many flowers,—
A temple of the heat.

Robert Frost Rose Pogonia

Yes, the sun is shining once again. The purple finches are hatching their second round of babies as are the two blue bird families. The second round of house wren babies have already fledged and their beautifully wound-up songs have, for the most part, receded from the summer sounds.

A new baby fawn graces the deer herd in the area. After watching the fawn and doe for an hour, I am pretty certain it is a male. Rambunctious and daring, the fawn reminded me of Randi, my little yarn rascal.

I promised the second part of the Cape Ann Afghan and here it is. I rewrote the first part, cleaning up the wording and editing for uniformity.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
