I work very hard, and I play very hard.
I'm grateful for life,
and I live it.
I believe life loves the liver of it.
After walking through the orchid house and some of the other lovely areas, in the Arboretum, I headed toward the Queen Anne Cottage, to do a little field sketch.
Love recognizes to barriers.
It jumps hurdles, leaps
fences, penetrates walls
to arrive at its destination
full of hope.
Surviving is important.
Thriving is elegant.
Queen Anne Cottage
You might recognize from a previous post ... or as the house at the beginning of Fantasy Island! Yep, they filmed that here.
Lift up your eyes upon
This day breaking for you.
Give birth again
To the dream.
A beautiful view from the terrace ...
And I found my spot!
A lovely view for a quick field sketch!
This was my "Vine" video, which has a limit of 6 seconds! Don't blink!
The arboretum is definitely known for its peacocks, though there are quite a few geese cruising around.
On my way out, I saw these ladies ...
And this beautiful gentleman!
I walked around, so I could see him from the back ...
And as you can see, he was incredible. These following photos were not taken with a telephoto. He let me get so close and for probably 10 minutes! It was amazing.
Nothing can dim
the light which shines from within.
Listen to yourself
and in that quietude
you might hear the voice of God.
