Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~Walt Whitman
Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out-values all the utilities of the world.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
[Quote from http://www.quotegarden.com] (how appropriate)
No, not really – it’s not snowing, but while checking my gmail this morning, I found a tab that said “Pictures” – apparently, photos that I’ve been uploading to my new and old blogs were captured and grouped in this depository. Kind of creepy since I didn’t create this and I didn’t create the folders that my pictures got lumped into – but I did hit this cool button that said “enhance” on this photo. I made it snow. I thought how cool would this be as a Christmas card photo that you could email to others. That’s all – just wanted to share. It takes so little to make me happy – not that snow makes me happy, but it does have its moments – like when I can look at it from my yard and know that I don’t have to drive in it. This was a rare photo of snow in South Carolina – this particular snow storm gave us four inches of snow in two hours. By the following day, under the high-noon Sun, it was all melted away.
