I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau We grew great big Elephant Ears from bulbs, this year. They are enormous and I just love their curves and rippled edges.
Each fairy breath of summer, as it blows with loveliness, inspires the blushing rose. ~Author Unknown This is a hibiscus bloom all snug just waiting to unfold it's gorgeous petals and show off it's fuzzy little round headed stamens.
I hope you are enjoying the remnants of summer. I missed the fireflies this year. There weren't any here. :( But there were lots of these little guys that live on the front shrubs. They are tiny and bright orange with long spindly black legs. I had to get really close to capture this one. Nature is so fascinating, refreshing and inspiring. Enjoy!
