other people’s gardens

I am grateful to all the people in my neighborhood who plant spring flowers.

Thanks, and ever thanks. Your gardens give me more delight than you can imagine.

04.15.13 drink the moment

Today’s photo is a little shot in the arm for all of us craving color, beauty, and, well, spring.

I found such a lovely poem – “Tulips” by A. E. Stallings –  that really captures the essence of the flowers’ fleeting beauty:

Something about the way they twist
As if to catch the last applause,
And drink the moment through long straws,
And how, tomorrow, they’ll be missed.
Here’s to drinking the moment.
