Yesterday was a lovely day for a walk through a botanical garden. It’s enough to make one wax poetic.

Flowers dressing up with a bee for jewelry.

The warm brown seed beetle looks rather like the seed it was born inside.

Another kind of green malachite attracts your eye.

Captivating captive beauties.

Feels like we need some words of wisdom today. How about:

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
