“Earth laughs in flowers”ย 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sun and rain agree to fall in equal measure;

filling the fecund buds –

with assurance of flowers

After the cold winter and spring of 2013, summer swiftly followed in the unusual heat. Many of the transplants refused to bloom. How different this year, every day there are new buds, seemingly appearing overnight with the rain and morning sunshine, fat buds full of summer promise. Sensory delight in the garden!

Enjoy your day, take time to smell the flowers….
