This June hydrangea calls to mind some lines from a very old poem…..
And what is so rare as a day in June?
Then, if ever, come perfect days;
Then Heaven tries earth if it be in tune,
And over it softly her warm ear lays;
Whether we look, or whether we listen,
We hear life murmur, or see it glisten
From: The Vision of Sir Launfal , 1848, by: James Russell Lowell (Author 1819-1891).
The Vision of Sir Launfal is an impressively lengthy poem that tells the story of
an Arthurian knight’s search for the Holy Grail.
Canon EOS REBEL T1i, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm.
