Stop And Smell The Flower

Stop And Smell The Flower. Kauai, August 2009.
***
"Given that our days are limited, our hours precious, we have to decide what we want to do, what we want to say, what and who we care about, and how we want to allocate our time to these things within the limits that do not and cannot change. In short, we need to slow down."
(Not So Fast. ... a manifesto for slow communication. By John Freeman.
Wall Street Journal, Aug. 22-23 )
Interesting.

  6. Nice photo.... gardening is all about toying with dirt. To smell flower down there and somewhere up?.. haha.

  10. Funny Tatyana, it took reading the title of your post in my feed list for me to finally realize the little dog, in your banner, is smelling the poppy. Today's photo is definitely thought provoking, as is the quote.

  11. Looks like they have had fun, yes from time to time we have to stop and think what we really want to do.

    Thank you for showing us your Moms Dalias.

  12. THank you everyone, for stopping and of course, not smelling, but looking at that hibiscus flower. It's me, or I should say- my legs- on the right, and my son's. We were kayaking, then hiking to a waterfall. It's a story I should post separately. There was a group of us, but I was the only one who noticed flowers in the dirt. Was I the only gardener in that group?

  13. Were you the only gardener? Probably not. But you were the one noticed, the one who understands....

    Such a nice post. (I am also a kayaker!!)

  14. Maybe we become gardeners because we are the people who notice the flowers or plants? I thought this photo was a very dramatic depiction of the thought!

  15. Wonderful photo, Tatyana. If those 4 muddy feet belonged to my boys, I was just wondering what I'd do.

    The dahlias in the previous post are just breath taking. So beautiful.
