old fashioned flowers

as for marigolds, poppies, hollyhocks and valorous sunflowers, we shall never have a garden without them, both for their own sake, and for the sake of old-fashioned folks, who used to love them. ~ henry ward beecher

the difference a month makes

time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away. ~ marcus aurelius

cherries

when i sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting

chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating

merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder

mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you’ll be fairies all

~ emily dickinson

let’s set sail

i find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: to reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor. ~ marjorie holmes
