Barefoot Days – July 5th


Barefoot Days by Rachel Field

In the morning, very early,
That’s the time I love to go
Barefoot where the fern grows curly
And the grass is cool between each toe,
On a summer morning – O!
On a summer morning!

That is when the birds go by
Up the sunny slopes of air,
And each rose has a butterfly
Or a golden bee to wear;
And I am glad in every toe-
Such a summer morning-O!
Such a summer morning!

Measure Me, Sky – June 17th


Measure Me, Sky by Leonora Speyer

Measure me, sky!
Tell me I reach by a song
Nearer the stars;
I have been little so long.

Weigh me, high wind!
What will your wild scales record?
Profit of pain,
Joy by the weight of a word.

Horizon, reach out!
Catch at my hands, stretch me taut,
Rim of the world:
Widen my eyes by a thought.

Sky, be my depth,
Wind, be my width and my height,
World, my heart’s span;
Loveliness, wings for my flight.


Beautiful Butterflies, Series 13 – June 16th


Today’s butterflies is the Red Admiral Butterfly. Really very pretty!


They enjoy eating sap instead of butterflies.


They can be anywhere from red to orange, and have beautiful patterns on each side of their wings.


Have a great day!
