Here's flowers for you:
Hot lavender, mints, savory, marjoram,
The marigold, that goes to bed wi'the sun,
And with him rises, weeping.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Perdita, in The Winter's Tale, act 4, sc. 4, l. 103-6.

When it gets close to 6pm and I haven’t taken a picture for the day, I start to panic. Thank goodness for these warmer months when flowers are in abundance. Sometimes, I feel like I’m cheating when I fall back on a flower as my photo of the day. Then I think, what the heck, flowers are good things – they are beautiful, colorful and make an excellent subject. My self-imposed photo goal is achieved and I can relax until tomorrow. All is well with the world.
