The View Challenge: June

Crikey, we are nearly at the half way point of the year! It does not seem possible does it?

As usual I am using the Sara Coleridge poem.

The Months
January brings the snow,
makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain,
thaws the frozen lake again.

March brings breezes loud and shrill,
stirs the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet,
scatters daisies at our feet.

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,
skipping by their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lilies, roses,
fills the children's hand with posies.

Hot July brings cooling showers,
apricots and gillyflowers.

August brings the sheaves of corn,
then the harvest home is borne.

Warm September brings the fruit,
sportsmen then begin to shoot.

Fresh October brings the pheasants,
then to gather nuts is pleasant.

Dull November brings the blast,
then the leaves are whirling fast.

Chill December brings the sleet,
blazing fire, and christmas treat.

I am hoping some of those flowers will be showing in my kitchen window photo this month!

My view of the coastline is one I took from Woolacombe beach on friday as the whole family went down for the whole glorious day.

I look forward to seeing your views if you get time.
