REMEMBERING THE SUMMER - PART IV

Summer 2014 - Flowers & Plants
There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.
- Linda Hogan
Summer 2014 - Flowers & Plants
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
- George Gordon Byron
Summer 2014 - Flowers & Plants
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
- E.B. White, Letters of E. B. White

  11. Oh Rosa, I just want to cry (in a good way) through your beautiful photos of summer! For you see, I am neither an autumnal or winter person, but rather one that thrives on the warmth of the sun and the various greens in the seasons of spring and summer. I shall await these times. Blessings for a warm holiday season.
