garden walk

Good Morning Monday!

Definitely feeling the wane of summer.  
The colors are deepening.
A few trees have yellow in their leaves.
The garden is in full maturity.

Come with me on a walk in the garden .....

to be overcome by the fragrance of flowers 
is a delectable form of defeat  
Beverly Nichols

flowers seem intended for 
the solace of ordinary humanity
John Ruskin

blue thou art .. intensely blue
flower, whence came thy dazzling hue? 
James Montgomery

a weed is but an unloved flower
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

when you have only two pennies left in the world
buy a loaf of bread with one
and a lily with the other 
.. Chinese Proverb

flowers don't worry about how the're going to bloom  
they just open up and turn toward the light 
and that makes them beautiful 
 Jim Carrey


have a most wonderful week ahead ....
