In the Garden

The earth laughs in flowers.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Violets in birdbath
It is on the edge of a petal that love waits.
-William Carlos Williams

Tulips in filtered light along fence.
'Tis my faith that every flower

enjoys the air it breathes.
-William Wordsworth

An old bulb produced a flower that was all leaf, but what a leaf!
Let us open our leaves like the flowers,
be passive and receive.
-John Keats

One Tulip learns to peek through fence for unfiltered sunlight.
There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the greatest of creation's braggarts.
-John Muir

What wonderful pictures you take! I love the eye for detail and unusual patterns that photography gives a person; it's such a great way to make yourself look at the world differently and enjoy the small things!

What a lovely garden you have! (Even if it is just virtual...)

I wish my violets were up - I would love to candy some for cupcakes this weekend. But all we have up are daffodils and crocuses.

Lovely. Thanks for sharing your garden.

I think I've become a flower addict. I just can't seem to get enough of them.
