Beautiful Victor Hugo Quote~
A Garden

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”

~ Victor Hugo

Garden in Late Summer

Garden Corner in Late Summer

Crape Myrtles do nothing most of the time. But once summer is at it’s height and just beginning to slide, they decide it’s time to glow… literally glow in my garden.

They sit back by the oaks, next to my crochet Mexican swing and have interspersed themselves impetuously around the garden, like it or not! Some are bushes like these and others seem to want to be trees. Either way I much appreciate their luscious red beauty about now when most everything has succumbed to the heat of the day!

Next to these are blue salvia, Mexican Bog Sage to be specific. Don’t plant it unless you never want to be rid of the stuff!

And always there’s a pot of flowers or five… This one is a beauty and admittedly fat and fragrant from my nursery not my green thumbs….

Buddhist Thought on What is Not Seen

“In April, we cannot see sunflowers in France, so we might say the sunflowers do not exist. But the local farmers have already planted thousands of seeds, and when they look at the bare hills, they may be able to see the sunflowers already…


The sunflowers are there. They lack only the conditions of sun, heat, rain and July. Just because we cannot see them does not mean that they do not exist.”
