Nothing lasts forever. Enjoy it while you can!

This sweet little angel reminds us to listen to Cesare Pavese and make the most of every moment! ❤

Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.


Yesterday, to my dismay I discovered that my lovely hot poker plants that had just started blooming were a bit too tempting for the deer that visit my yard to leave alone. I’m so glad I got a photo before they met their demise. While I lost the hot poker plants, I am thankful that the large lily opened up. As with life, there are endings but also new beginnings. I will enjoy and appreciate my lily while I have it. ❤

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

    I’ll bet the hot poker plant will return next year.

      I hope so Laura Kate! My plan is to plant more deer resistant bulbs and perennials this fall. I guess if they are hungry enough, though, the deer will eat anything.

  2. These are beautiful flowers! My wife would love these! And nice job with lovely Angele, Beth! It’s amazing that you keep making art continuously!
