Insects and flowers go together so brilliantly – like ice cream and waffle cones, or like bare feet and grass, or watermelon and picnics. They are such happy little summer vignettes. Just the thought of happy little insects buzzing from flower to flower, drinking nectar, and flitting in the sunlight makes me smile. Nothing is so quintessentially summer. Today it’s been gloomy and raining, so I found these pics I took of sun-drenched flowers while on vacation in Denver. I hope they bring a sunny brightness to your day.
“Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers” -Robert G. Ingersoll
“The butterfly is a flying flower. The flower is a tethered butterfly” – Ecouchard Le Brun
“Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as the nectar to the tongue” – John Muir
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle” – Albert Einstein
May you see the miraculous this week and marvel at the beauty around you.
Blessings to you,
