Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
I did some processing with one of my sunflower snaps and wrote something I believe in. So that is a quote by yours truly and is copyrighted to me 😀 😀
Have a great weekend!
I found a very different and creative decoration on a wall of a hotel at Mahabaleshwar, India. There were these metal figurines hanging on the wall and this creeper with pink flowers had grown all around them.
This photo was taken in the Jardin des Plantes, the main botanical garden in France. The Jardin des Plantes is situated on the left bank of the river Seine and includes a vast garden of beautiful flowers. It was originally established as a garden of medicinal herbs, but now includes a zoo, a greenhouse, and 4 museums.
