coming up roses
Look to the weeds
and find the beauty
 hidden within them.”

bring happiness, 
but happiness always 
brings beauty."

Looking AT?! "

Super quotes and images Cloudia, although when I head out into my back garden and see all the weeds, I see no beauty :)

I am enjoying those birds. I must admit that some of the quotes 'hit' home :).

Beautiful quotes. Have a beautiful day!

Many of the plants people call weeds have flowers of their own

Like the song says, every new beginning is some other beginning's end...

"Little men are

Made me think of Pearl Jam's "Elderly Woman Behind A Counter In A Small Town", but that's not the kind of title of which this proverb was speaking.

Love all the pictures. +1 for sure.

Loons are beautiful, our state bird here in Minnesota and yet, hard to find!
