Sunny Day

"tell me again of afternoon friends
of square tables in gardens round

of shattered stars that dare not cry
washing teased by yesterday rain
and breaking sunlight by

and i will draw you of yourself
and paint this ceiling blue
i will cast this echo back
and i  --
         i will love you"

     ~Count Me the Stars
          by Kylie Johnson

    I love the little quote above from Kylie Johnson's book Count Me the Stars. My sister picked it up at a trip to Anthropologie and I read it in an hour. The poetry is so beautiful and interesting. Yesterday was sunny and I spent the afternoon in the garden. I decided to try taking some of the photos that I had made notes about in my little 'blogging ideas' notebook (yes I have a notebook - several notebooks in fact where I record any number of useful and useless things on a regular basis *smile*). I wanted to create some photos that fit with this beautiful piece of poetry and I had a really fun time trying. I hope you like what I came up with...
