THEN FOLLOWED THAT BEAUTIFUL SEASON….SUMMER IN TRINITY BELLWOODS PARK

“Then followed that beautiful season . . . summer.

  Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;

and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”  (Henry Wardsworth Longfellow.)

 

 

 

“Summer afternoon,   summer afternoon;  

to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”   (Henry James)

 

Summer and the perfect time to become a flaneur and wander the streets in this old Toronto neighborhood.   The gardens of stately  homes heavy with the fragrance of old  fashion flowers.

 

 

 

The lovely lupine … a graceful wand of colour.

 A whisper of lavender …  the soul, the scent of Provence.

Graceful irises like pieces of the deep, blu sky flung into the garden.

A slender rope suspended between sheltering trees.  To walk barefoot in the park on air.  Summer is a glorious time in Trinity Bellwoods Park

SUMMER AFTERNOON … THE TWO MOST BEAUTIFUL WORDS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

  1. What beautiful flowers, especially the lavender which I love! Looks like a lovely spot but obviously neither Longfellow or James lived in Arizona when they penned these lines. 🙂 Here we long for winter. 🙂 Happy mid-week, Virginia.

    • Janet, dear friend. We have been following your weather. Hot! For us the reverse – cloudy and incessant rain. It will not be a good year for many of the farmers here. Crops in to late to germinate. However, my David Austin roses love the weather and reward me with masses of blooms. Cheers Virginia
