Spirit of Summer


Spirit of Summer
Originally uploaded by Lady-bug.
"I am a spirit of no common rate:
The summer still doth tend upon my state;
And I do love thee. Therefore go with me.
I'll give thee fairies to attend on thee,
And they shall fetch thee jewels from the deep,
And sing while on pressed flowers dost sleep."

-William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

It is like a painting. Beautiful.

Saw this on FLickr - very nice - love the country garden feel with pastel colour nicely muted.

Perfect text for a perfect summer image.

a field of flowers is one of my favourite sites and not often found in my little neck of the woods - the quote is perfect and one can almost imagine fairies dancing in between the cool shade of a dancing leaf ... gorgeous capture!

Something so simple as a field of wild flowers is, in itself, perfection.
