Welcome to September…

“By all these lovely tokens September days are here

with Summer’s best of weather and Autumn’s best of cheer.”

Don’t you just love these Autumn colours!

Friday’s Flower of Friendship…

“Friends, you and me…

you brought another friend…and then there were three…

we started our group…our circle of friends…

and like that circle…there is no beginning or end.”

~Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote says it all…

Poetic Thoughts…

“When you see incredible strength,

know that it rests on unspeakable fragility.

Recognise both.”

Fragile~

near paper thin

they’re almost translucent

perfect petals support stoic

stamens…

Pick me~

ripe and ready

watch out for scavengers

active interest by the birds means

 fruit gone…

The garden is bursting with these beautiful,

lilac-blue blooms and fresh, green leaves.

Looking at Life in Black and White…

“To the complaint,

‘There are no people in these photographs,’

I respond, There are always two people:

the photographer and the viewer.”

~ Ansel Adams

The pattern and position of each of these ray florets are perfectly captured

and highlighted in this black and white image.

It also emphasises the element of texture;

making this Dahlia so prominent.

I’m so glad we are in it too!

Summertime Blues…

“If you are feeling blue…

try painting yourself

a different colour.”

~ Hannah Cheatem

Lavender blue, surrounded by lush green leaves;

a delight to behold in any garden,

or maybe you’d rather see pink!

These showy blooms are one of my favourites!

I’m never blue when I see them,

Frances 💙

Poetic Thoughts…

“Do not wait for someone

to bring you flowers.

Plant your own garden

and decorated your own soul.”

~ Unknown

Dahlia our Queen of the Garden

“Think left and think right

and think low and think high.

Oh, the things you can think,

if you only try!”

~ Dr.Seuss

The sky is the limit….

Be a thinker, be a planner,

enjoy every moment to the fullest!

You only have one life…

So let’s live it!
