"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
~ Rachel Carson
I'm joining the celebration at Family of Five by sharing something to celebrate each day of the week. Today it's beauty ~ what inspires us to create, whether in words, photographs, finger paint or sepia marker. The evil, stupidity and sadness in the world can bring you down if you forget what is happy, colorful and joyous. This is a photo from last summer. The blooms are spectacular. The fact that such things exist gives me hope.
