  1. see your monday post is much later than usual were you also having blogger problems???

  2. Kim - Huh? No, no problems. Except on Thursday, I usually post in the late afternoon. That's usually when I get everything else I'm doing done so I can edit whatever pictures I took in the course of the day and then post them here.

    Tut - Yeah, I think posting a version of "Sumer is icumen in" is starting to be a June tradition with me. Heh, heh!

  3. Ah, daisies. The friendliest flower!

  4. I remember the song being sun at the opening ceremony of either the World Cup or the Olympic Games 30 or 40 years ago. The haunting tune has stayed with me ever since.

  5. Gorgeous daisies, & there's nothing like a Middle English round to get the day going!
