Summer Greens #Etsy

Going topical today. It`s Summer because it`s supposed to be right now and green because due to all the excessive rain everywhere is very green.
I had a look around but ended up using all the creations from the Crafty Folk team. I was going to include a few team members but kept finding so many lovely things that I kept on adding until I realised I was done and hadn`t wandered further a field.
For those that don`t know, the Crafty Folk are a team I belong to on Etsy and they have a daily listing club that I take part in.
I have included a couple of my creations as well today for a change. I don`t usually I know, but I have thrown caution to the wind and done it anyway.
Yesterday I was at work and it was all pretty manic. The day went quickly but my feet were protesting long before the day was over. I did though manage to make a good start on a scarf, in my lunch hour, after finishing a pair of gloves. Then got more done in the evening. Yet more to add to the evergrowing pile.
At this rate you`ll be thinking I`m making all this up, these creations of mine. But I promise that they will eventually get listed and you will see them all.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

We did consider the rain a boon
and now the sight makes us swoon.
Cries of `No, please not again`
accompany each fresh bout of rain.
It pours down in heavy showers
crushing and breaking the flowers.
The weeds they grow like crazy
in a world so often hazy.
Sheets of rain blot out the view
making us all feel very blue.
Endless skies in shades of grey
greet us each and every day.
A hint of blue sometimes appears
helping to allay our fears,
that summer will never get here
and the rain will never clear.
There is a silver lining in this cloud
despite our having a watery shroud,
everywhere is so very green,
it`s looks the best it`s ever been.
So look for the good and you will find
that maybe it`s not such a bind!!

  2. Oh thank you Linda. You've created a lovely treasury of green goodies and I appreciate the inclusion. Will keep repeating the last lines of your poem, as I have woken up to another really, really rainy day and my bamboo has grown another two feet overnight.
