postheadericon What I Can’t See on Wednesday

I usually like to share photos of what I see around here and out at the ranch.  Well, I did take a bunch of pictures to show you.  I just can’t get them off of the card on onto the computer!  I have to go get a new card reader today.  My old one finally bit it and of course, I can’t find the cord to connect the camera.  Ah well….

I thought I’d share a quote with you from a movie I saw earlier today “Post Grad“.  It really stuck with me.  Michael Keaton plays Alexis Bledel’s father in the movie and tells her

“What you do with your life is only half of it, the other fifty percent is who you do it with.”

Garden Sanctuary

You who walk,
Maybe with troubled thoughts,
Come, enter here and rest;
And may the sweet serenity of growing things,
And the heavenly peace
Be mirrored in thy soul.
-Doxis M. Palmer

celia thaxter Red Barn Blue Skies Sunday Selections
He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally
considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small
compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world
with a passion for flowers in his soul.
– Celia Thaxter
