…and found flowers everywhere we looked.

Shrubs abounded, with flowers reaching higher than Constance could climb,

but the lowly weeds were beautiful too!

  1. So many flowers?!! Yes you must live in Paradise! Seeing Constance with the lowly dandelion reminded me of something I read..in our part of the world they are one of the earliest foods available for the honey bee! Thank
    you for all these beautiful flowers and the always serene Constance.

  2. It’s sheer heaven to see such beauty. I’m glad roy g biv is alive and well in your part of the world. We are getting a drop of the “y” and “b” these days. Thank you.

  3. What a beautiful way to start an end your work day. My most appreciated gift is loving nature…and of course my Hitty’s. I was shocked in my younger years to realize that not every person on the planet loved “a walk in the woods”.

    To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand ( or your Hitty )
    And Eternity in an hour.
    By William Blake
