Cactus Flower Fence

A  L  O  H  A !
" Most new things are not good, 

and die an early death;

[ let's link this to Good Fences!]

 but those which 
push themselves forward 
and by slow degrees 
force themselves 
on the attention of mankind 

are the unconscious productions 
of human wisdom, 
and must have 
honest consideration, and 
must not be made 
the subject of 
unreasoning prejudice. "
                            Thomas Brackett Reed

I dig that!
How about 
Y O U?

                          Fondly, cloudia

I understand this idea to mean that the real changes happen slowly and are hardly noticeable until they have been accepted by most people, and that fast changes usually disappear at a similar rate to how quickly they appeared. I need to think about that quote a bit. For sure fads come and go in a flash. But I'm not sure all happenings that appear to be fads at first end up being fads after all. Yep, I need to ponder about this idea. ;)

I do too! Yesterday's innovations or heresies can become tomorrow's commonplace. That's progress.

What a darling little flowered cactus that is!

The tiny flower of the cactus is very pretty.

Your pictures of the cactus are stunning. And I do agree with your quote, although it kind of cuts away the heart of capitalism.

That wee cactus flower is no flash in the pan!

Love the cactus fence. I think a lot of the positive changes have nothing to do with human wisdom - which is in short supply.

William Kendall said...

The cacti stand out beautifully!

I need a life vest to understand that quote - too deep, without the PFD, I will sink :)
The Cacti are gorgeous - super photos, Cloudia!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Quite true about new things especially in terms of gadgets. Not as lasting as the old ones where they take time to make sure of the good quality
