And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about....
Exodus 28: 33

Canterbury bells on their stem
Bequeath their purple appeal
'tween the iron wheel
And round about my hem...
Poetry by me AJP

It was extremely hot today with a heat index of 110 degrees when I shot this self portrait...Needless to say, because I didn't care to stay outside too long I did not take any pains in doing this picture except when I touched the iron wheel with my fingers... It felt similar to a branding iron:)

Tonight very soon we are predicted to have a tornado.

    I hope you will be safe Andrea. This is a wonderful SP. I do love your dress. It has been an incredibly hot beginning to the summer this year but I am so glad it is not cold.

    Thank you Regenia...It got stormy but nothing too serious...Lots of thundering
    and lightning but other places got it worse than we did. The good news is that
    it is not as hot and muggy as it was earlier.
