Craig and I love to garden and we especially fond of roses like these landscaping roses ... as delicate as apple blossoms!
We also love the crepe-like texture of this double geranium ---
And the simple clarity of this single red geranium.
Yet, nature produces some magnificent but tiny flowers a la naturelle. I think this is a cluster of tansy blossoms.
And this looks like some form of vetch to me. Do you know what it is?
And what could shout "Summer" more clearly than a stand of teasel among the blackberries?
Just the sight of these lovelies - man-engendered and natural - take me back to a time of intense curiosity, standing in the warm sun, gazing in delight at the textures and color, seeing the glory in simple things.
