Deem It 'Good'

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Calms appear, when Storms are past;
Love will have his Hour at last:
Nature is my kindly Care;
Mars destroys,
and I repair;
Take me, take me, while you may,
Venus comes not ev'ry Day.
John Dryden

The biggest obstacle to
good gardening is the desire
to know the answers and
not the questions.
Monty Don
In nature, nothing is perfect
and everything is perfect.
Alice Walker

I'll cautiously wait till the Tree People leave! 

When Humans you see
be ready to flee,
When THEY see YOU
That's the thing to do!
  - F  A  S  T - - - -

Buddha's Janitor
A monk’s day begins with cleaning.
We sweep the temple grounds
and gardens and polish
the main temple hall.
We don’t do this because
it’s dirty or messy.
We do it to eliminate the
suffering in our hearts.
Shoukei Matsumoto

Clean your screens as if
you are cleaning your soul, allowing
the air to flow through freely.
Shoukei Matsumoto,
A Monk’s Guide to A Clean House & Mind

It's nice that love comes on
first thing in the evening,
and goes out last
in the morning.
Love keeps the light
on all night.
Catherynne M. Valente

The universe itself is change
and life itself is but
what you deem it.

Love You,
       Cloudia & Pixie

All these quotes are for a life time to realise

The biggest obstacle to good gardening is... my neighbors complaining about me making too much noise at 3 in the morning.

I wonder if the name Pixie comes from those two black points just on her nose. Her face has so much character and expression.

I have lots of favorites the cute lizard and the ducks, the night sky and moon capture and your sweet Pixie. Take care, enjoy you day!

Just lovely. Nature is solace and heart balm to me. And the gardening is NEVER done.

RedPat said...

Love the duck family and that night sky, Cloudia.

William Kendall said...

The ducklings look comfy.

Cloudia said...

Yes, we do seem to get up early these days! Pixie was a rescue and came to us with her name already. But yes I like the two black sesame seeds on her nose and lucky to have such a beautiful companion. And I'm lucky in my friends. Thanks to each of you! Aloha!

I like the quote from Buddha and the night sky photo is absoluutely beautiful.

Sandee said...

All so beautiful. I want that lizard. We have tons of them here and they are most cute. So is Pixie.
