Oh June, The Time of Singing…

June is definitely a favored month of warm weather fun and outdoor activity.  For us, it is the incredible garden blooms in the Promise Gardens of every kind and description that break forth “in singing” throughout the gardens.  Beautiful color, aroma and visions of design created in nature and we can enjoy in our creations.  When I photographed this flower, I knew immediately it would make a beautiful wallpaper background to share.  Enjoy my friends and as the color enhances our imagination…the aroma of lavender invades our senses.

“Beauty from Heaven’s Brink”

JoyPals Design Studio

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: 
Its loveliness increases; it will never 
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep 
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep 
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.          
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing 
A flowery band to bind us to the earth, 
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth 
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days, 
Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways           
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all, 
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall 
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon, 
Trees old and young, sprouting a shady boon 
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils           
With the green world they live in; and clear rills 
That for themselves a cooling covert make 
‘Gainst the hot season; the mid forest brake, 
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms: 
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms           
We have imagined for the mighty dead; 
All lovely tales that we have heard or read: 
An endless fountain of immortal drink, 
Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.”

John Keats, Endymion, Book I
