I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Sunday Snippet

As Spring turns to summer and gardens blossom and bloom, I have chosen to be romantic in my choice of snippet, with a waterlily. A flower floating on water can only speak of romance.


The Water Lily

'Art thou from the snowy zone
Of a mountain-summit blown,
Or the blossoms of a dream,
Fashioned in the foamy stream?'

by John B. Tabb (19th Century)
from 'A Victorian Posy' edited by Sheila Pickles

The images are from the garden of a palace on an island in the beautiful Lago Maggiore in Italy.

Love your blog.))

I now spend a survey of bloggers with such questions.
1. Why did you create a blog?
2. For whom you taking him? Want to be popular?
3. How long will it keep going?

Both photos remind me of watercolours.

This water lily picture makes me so happy. I might print it out and put it in my dreary cubicle.

Melissa, so print it out - that would be lovely and you could dream enchanted dreams in your breaks!
