All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Marie Curie



Nature is the art of God. ~ Dante Alighieri



The poetry of the earth is never dead. ~ John Keats



Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. ~ Rachel Carson



Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. ~ Mark Twain



A clear conscience is the sure sign of a bad memory. ~ Mark Twain



Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in. ~ Mark Twain

Very nice, Sylvia! Love the roses, especially.

BTW, have I ever told you that my younger sister's name is Sylvia? Lovely name!

Sylvia, I am back and for good. Took a break. Just like that. As usual, those pictures are delightful. The header is pleasing to the eyes. Happy week ahead.

aloha,

this was a very nice tour of a day in the life of your area, i love this sunset photo best, thanks for sharing it.

help me decide on a photo from my plant fanatic blog, if you don't mind?

Barb said...

Are they your roses, Sylvia? I love that color of melon/orange. The sunset is spectacular - you're lucky to be so close to the water.

ewok1993 said...

are they your roses? how beautiful is that shade of peach/blush. i wonder if it has scent.

love the pix, as always.

Sylvia K said...

Barb and Ewok, the roses belong to a neighbor across the alley from us, they're just growing all over the fence and even into a nearby tree. It's been hard to capture them because we've had such strong breezes and several of my shots were just too blurry. But every now and then I get lucky. They are such a lovely peach/blush color!

Thanks for stopping by! Always appreciated!

Your world is beautiful.

Al said...

Wonderful shots as always, Sylvia. It looks like you still have some snow on your mountains. It's almost all gone from mine, although there was a fresh coat a couple of weeks ago.

Melissa B. said...

Such lovely photos, Sylvia. I used to have violets on the mainland. I sure do miss them. I loved seeing your beautiful photo.

Wolynski said...

Love the close-ups of the roses and the quotes by Mark Twain.

Luna Miranda said...

terrific photos, Sylvia. the roses seem to be begging to be sniffed at.:p

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Stunning pictures as always -- Beautiful summer in the PNW! Love the Marie Curie quote. Somehow I never thought of scientists taking such great, child-like pleasure in the outdoors and nature. Guess I need to read a bio of her!

Gattina said...

Is there still snow on the mountains in the first picture ? then they must be quiet high !
Love the roses too !

JM said...

Very nice, Sylvia! I especially enjoy the sunset pic and the snow covered mountain tops.

George said...

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures of your world. Thanks, too, for the great quotes. Once again I liked what Mark Twain had to say.

Lily Hydrangea said...

a beautiful world Sylvia! & of course, excellent quotes as always.
the Keats one about the poetry of earth is my favorite & so very true.

Susan at Stony River said...

I'm glad you've got such pretty skies lately Sylvia, and beautiful views!

Meanwhile I'm *still* trying to find a good few minutes to just sit down and chat a while without kids making noise or needing me -- school starts in just a few weeks and I think that might be perfect timing for it!

Kathiesbirds said...

You live in a world of beauty! Love the quotes by Marie Curie and Rachel Carson.

Lew said...

Beautiful skies and beautiful flowers! A marvelous world you have there.

Eden said...

What a beautiful place you live in, Sylvia! love all your photos and quotes.

Paula said...

Thank you for sharing your beautiful world, I like your purple violet.
