It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Oh May, Oh May, Oh May.... Oh My.


"Everything is blooming.... most recklessly;

if it were voices instead of colors,

there would be an unbelievable shrieking

into the heart of the night." -

~Rainer Maria Rilke~

What beautiful flowers. I love them all. The rose is a very lovely color. The snowball bush reminds me one that mother had. Have a great day. Madeline

Oh I love that, "blooming recklessly" completely abandoned to the warmth & the fertile ground.You always have just the right verse......
The lavender, the roses & oh the snowball bush, my Mum had one too! My little garden is just as reckless, buds,buds,buds & flowers everywhere I look!
