Summer And Fall ~ Nona Keen Duffy Said It Best ๐Ÿ’•

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

I just came across this lovely poem. It made me smile – so I want to share it with you!

I hope you love it too! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

I’m always curious about artists that touch something in me…so I (tried to) find out more about Nona Keen Duffy.

Sadly I couldn’t find much ๐Ÿ˜•

This lovely lady was born on 11 February , 1893, and died on 23 September 1989 at the age of 96.

She is buried in Glendale, California.

Nona was the 4th child of James and Victoria Keen, and had 4 sisters & 3 brothers.

I found this photo of the Keen family on Pinterest.

Nona is on the right, behind her baby sister Thelma.

Do you enjoy the time of year described in the poem? I love it – the heat is over and done with, but it’s warm enough to enjoy some outdoor-time. And the promise of Fall in the air – there’s nothing better than that!

I’m looking forward to hearing from you! ๐Ÿ’•


Wildflowers ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒป

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’• Me again ๐Ÿ˜

Yesterday I showed you some pictures of my walk on the Nature Trail nearby. Well, ever since I posted the pictures of the Wildflowers I tried to remember a lovely poem about them. It just wouldn’t leave me alone … or come to me ๐Ÿ˜œ

But thanks to the ‘Hello Poetry’ website ๐Ÿ˜ You now get to (have to? ๐Ÿ™‚) read a poem.

First – the picture 

And here are some lovely words from Elizabeth Cotton 

Wildflowers ๐ŸŒผ 

The sun 

shook in laughter 


 tiny pieces 




amidst the grass 

and leaves 

now swaying in the breeze 

still laughing all the while

 ~ Elizabeth Cotton ๐Ÿ’œ

Beautiful, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜

I hope to see you tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜Š

Until then ๐Ÿ’•
