sweet may


solo post - L, Nikon and iphone

"Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on."
- Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs

Just a patch of weeds - but aren't they pretty little things? This lawn was quite colorful -there were purple, white and yellow weeds mixed with the green green grass. Actually kinda pretty. But I guess if it was your yard you wouldn't appreciate them so much. Sort of like graffiti?

Very pretty! We have purple and white violets in our lawn and dandelions, too. They are pretty! I hope you have a good weekend!

And see? Just a pinch of blue jean marries the two pictures. I am in awe of your marriage abilities.

I wonder how a plant gets classified as a weed. I am an equal opportunity gardener...so if something is growing in my garden and it's pretty then it gets to stay...regardless. My kids will always bring me bunches of flowers ...most of which are actually weeds...but to them they are beautiful.

I love the quote about weeds! This week, I've had iris, cranesbill, colombine, weigela, and azaelas blooming. I was sitting reading the second book in the Twilight Series tonight on the patio when I heard I buzzing. I looked up, expecting a wood bee to find a hummingbird hovering over the colombine. I love spring!

I don't think I've ever read that quote before (weeds/graffiti). I love it!

This is a perfect diptych. The miracles of the Earth beneath our feet and the sky above our heads. Marvelous.
