Joy is my wordpress blog ‘watermelonseeds).
One year old today and now with sixteen
ardent followers.
Thank you all for your comments
over my first year.

Joyful July (days 21-30)

Day 21.
Looking up at the twisted frame above me
I see a parasol canopy of willow leaves.

Day 22.
A bundle of joy for my cousin
in a few months. Hooray.

Day 23.
fan out
like petals around
the patio bird bath
after the blackbirds

Day 24.
Tired and hot after the most fabulous day at
RHS Garden show with good company.
Smiling all the way to shower and bed.

Day 25.
flowery wands,
red admiral, peacock
and brown speckled wood.

seedy wands,
goldfinch, blue tit,
greenfinch and great tit.

Day 26.
Nothing is more joyful
than a hug from far away family.

Day 27.
A boat trip on a Sunday afternoon
on a peaceful river.

Day 28.
Normality and contentment
in my own home
is a joy now and I hope
always will be.

Day 29.
Soft pale pink yarn
and bamboo needles
make a surprise gift
for my niece.

Day 30.
Ripening rowan berries
mark the passing of time
with warm colours of the spectrum,
yellow through to red.


Joyful July (days 11 – 20)

Day 11.
The first step outside
to a day full of promise
with love and friendship,

precious and treasured moments
measured in laughter and joy.

Day 12.
The sweet scent of summer
graces the air and pleases my soul
in silent strength.

Day 13.
summer breeze
across Starmount lodge
rippling water and reeds
blows cobwebs away.
Breathe deeply,

Day 14.
Earthy dust rises
permeating the air,
as the first summer rain falls.

Day 15.
After a long day
freshly laundered bedding,
coffee and a book.

Day 16.

Many shades of green

dancing together in the wind

wait for the rain

to quench their thirst.


Day 17.
Salmon, cod and smoked haddock
in a light parsley sauce
topped with creamy mashed potato.
Fish pie.

With my new hearing aids
at last I know what
silence sounds like.

Day 19.
Joy today is watching my husband
on a voyage of discovery
into something that may becomeo
a new hobby.
Amazed at his progress so far.

Day 20.
We had a smashing Sunday tea,
my children, grandson,
him and me.

Warm flowing water
washes stuffy night away
ready for July.

Being off colour
means you can stay home all day
joyfully thinking.

Newsletter deadline;
joy means satisfaction
of a job well done.

inane chatter
tea and biscuits
juicy gossip, helping hand,

A warm milky drink
and a golden digestive
just before bedtime.

buddlea spears
buff tailed bees
happy with one another,

Day 6.
Joyful little rainbows
all over my room
courtesy of the sun
and the crystal in the window.

Joy is the sublteness of the herb
in a bowl of golden
carrot and coriander soup.

Day 8.
Joy today was singing crazy songs
in a car full of sunshine and friends.

Day 9. (elfje)
gentle hushing
summer breeze blows
peace and relaxation through

Loving the freshness of a summer evening
as the sun sets in a golden glow.
