If You Know Where To Look

A  L  O  H  A !
 "Set wide the window, 
let me drink the day."
            Edith Wharton

California Scrub Jay

"Hear! hear!" screamed the jay 
from a neighboring tree, 
where I had heard a 
tittering for some time, 
"winter has a concentrated 
and nutty kernel, if you 
know where to look for it." 
              Henry David Thoreau

" Success is following 
the pattern of life 
one enjoys most. "
                       Al Capp

"In the sweetness of friendship 
let there be laughter, and 
sharing of pleasures. 
For in the dew of 
little things the heart finds 
its morning and is refreshed." 
                 Khalil Gibran

I think Hawaii beats Florida in terms of beautiful flowers, although in south Florida, we have many of the same species. And similar birds. Thanks for visiting Ocala and for your comment. Wishing you a very Happy New Year filled with peace and joy and good health!

Cool looking Foxglove. Makes me want to try and grow one. But I already know how it would turn out. Thank goodness for pictures.
