Poppies (2)

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”    ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

These flowers are so beautiful and fragile, each morning they bloom and by the end of the day they are mostly gone. If there is wind or rain - they pass very quickly. They are the centerpiece of the garden and I am so happy that I planted them! It is a strange feeling to be so powerless to make something grow and then so powerless to make it stay. There can only be the short time of appreciation and observation...

Day One
