Just A Closer Look...

...At The Picket Fence Flowers


I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. 
Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.

I perhaps owe having become a photographer to flowers.

  8. Sue,
    Just beautiful pictures. I am loving closeups. The pictures with the bees are absolutely wonderful.

    On another note - I finally finished two socks. Not a pair. They are quite snug so I am going to regroup on needle size and pattern.
