This hat has been in my collection for two decades. I decided that the old black ribbon, stained from years of garden perspiration, needed to go. I fell in love with this french-wire spool and hope that this updated version of straw sustains me a few more years.
The new bow quite resembles the french cherry jam spooned onto my crispbread both rich in color and sweet appearance—
Yet not as rich and sweet as my views in the field last Sunday—
I adore this time of year when views promise spring,
yet winter dormancy continues to color vistas.
