more flowers!


king of the lilly pool

Everyone needs flowers. I still have lavender, fuschia, rose, hollyhocks, dandilions (boo!) and some alpine whose name I forget going strong in my garden. This isn't in my garden, it's in the Botanic Gardens. It's nice there this time of year if you can make it through the gate before sunset.

Genau!
Glory be to God for dappled things -
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh fire-coal chestnut falls; finches' wings;
Landscape plotted and pierced - fold, fallow, and plough;
And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift. Slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.

(Pied Beauty, Gerald Manley Hopkins.) Yea.
