"What greater delight is there

than to behold the earth

apparelled with plants

as with a robe of embroidered works,

set with Orient pearls

and garnished with the great diversitie of rare and costly jewels.

But these delights are in the outward senses.

The principle delight is in the mind,

singularly enriched with the knowledge of these visible things,

setting forth to us the invisible wisdom

and admirable workmanship of almighty God."

John Gerard, 1633, The Herbal

The blooms are beautiful! Is that a tradescantia in the new header? I have never looked at it that closely. Your pictures me me remember to do that.

Have a good work week.

That Louie Phillipe is so pretty. Great pics of the honeysuckle. I should place my big shells in the garden but I'm afraid that they will get broken. Maybe I'll do it anyway. Hope you're doing good.

the shell is stunning, with all it's detail! I love the last two lines of the poem. "Invisible wisdom" is perfect, isn't it??

Oh, how nice to see flowers blooming instead of snow flying! I'm not ready yet, but I know it's inevitable.

You're so right, time to think winter and get some stained glass work going again. Just have to shift gears for a few months. (But it's hard to do!)

Poinsettias curbside; what a treat. Keep the color coming. You things are pretty brown here now. Still have a little leaf color.
