Flaming June

FLAMING JUNE by Frederic Leighton 1895


I love this image by Frederic Leighton entitled “Flaming June”.

The painting evokes:

  • summer
  • beauty
  • afternoon naps
  • flowing dresses
  • and bare feet.

The only thing missing for me is the smell of honeysuckle which is so rich in the month of June.

Sweetness abounds! All one has to do is open your eyes and look around.

Happy June!
