Summer Idyll 2018 (#690)


Beautiful Rose of Sharon tree graces the grounds outside the Kent Homestead Mansion in Kent, Ohio where I visited the monthly event called, The Kent Flea, a flea market with lots of local art, antiques and homemade everything.

It was a day of extreme humidity, not my strong suit.  This amazing flower lifted my malaise not only with its captivating presence but also with fond memories of my years living in Pennsylvania where several of them grew in my gardens.

Inside the mansion, a wooden panel shows an artisan’s carved rendering of flowers in bloom.  I am so very appreciative of the beauty and goodness that surrounds me wherever I go.

As it goes,

Hold steady in the soft,

Silent passing of summer

As it goes,

Observe and be

As awesome as your surroundings.

    There are many rose of Sharon bushes around. Love the beautiful flowers. Brings fond memories for me too. My Mom and Grandmom always loved them. I smile a little every time I walk past some morning with my Lab. Such happy times. You have a head full of happy memories with all your travels. You are truly blessed.
