“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”

Thérèse of Lisieux (2 January 1873 – 30 September 1897), or Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, born Marie-Françoise-Thérèse Martin, was a French Carmelite nun. She is also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus".

TIME: 6:42 PM
PLACE:  Front yard
SUBJECT: Butterfly Marguerite Daises

I went somewhat traditional in my front planters this year: yellow daises, red geraniums and white verbena.  It’s a nice, bright, cheery combo that makes me smile whenever I see them.  Summer has arrived with a vengeance – we made it to 98 degrees today.
