July in Wisconsin and Creative Note

I read in an old chair by an open window and listen to summer sounds. Several books to look at here and there. Soon there will be many daylily and hosta flowers. Peonies are in bloom.

Poems from my archives

many trees
provide shade
for this street
on a varied
route to the
library
I find books
this time that
tell personal stories
and grant some rest

I was looking at new nonfiction books at Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  When I was browsing, I remembered a haiku.

the fragrance
of fresh paper

As a CREATIVE NOTE, sometimes readers refer back to a short post from August 2016 about Joanne Chase, an artist from Wisconsin. Here is the post and information again.

We enjoy buying greeting cards by Joanne Chase, from Hartland, Wisconsin.  Her watercolor designs are beautiful.

This morning I enjoyed seeing many pictures at Chase Greeting Cards.

We often buy her cards at Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly here in Oostburg.
