Wild Berries, True Grit and Toadflax

Did somebody say wild berries?
No berries were hurt in the making of this post.

True Grit.

Best. Try. Ever.
Self-lesson about to begin.
Karina took a kayak and set out
(by herself) 
but the wind just wasn't willing to let her leave shore.

Admitting your
weakness does
not diminish
your strengths,
it shows your courage.
Erin Andrews

"I can't change the direction of the wind
but I can adjust my sails,
to always reach my destination."
Jimmy Dean

"Always be open in everything, because where there is secrecy, 
it often is mistakenly seen as being sneaky,
even though you may be innocently quiet."

"History is hereditary only in this way;
we, all of us, inherit everything,
and then we choose what to cherish
what to disavow
and what to do next
which is why it's worth trying 
to know where things come from."
Jill Lepore
(author of the Secret History of Wonder Woman)

I saw that!

"Your perspective on life comes from the cage you were held captive in."
Shannon L. Alder

Choose fun in the sun!
"Seek freedom and become captive of your desires!"

Frank Herbert

"Most misunderstandings in the world 
could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, 
What else could this mean?"
Shannon L. Alder

Excuse me.You know it's raining out right? barked Rusty.

Happiness is right where you are.

We gather where we wander.

Life is an adventure or it's nothing.

My greenhouse growing adventures has taken a new turn
of hopefully great heights, someday. Okay years from now.

"Go out into the world today 
and love the people you meet.
Let your presence light new light in the hearts of people."
Mother Teresa 

If you do,
It cures everything.

On your journey
 if you should happen 
upon an old shack in the woods-
rest a bit.

Perhaps you'll notice the hearty toadflax that is similar to the snapdragon.
Although, nature has a way of closing in on everything.
Be watchful.

For my Gnome fans.
This is for you.

Thanks for stopping by I appreciate your visits 
take good care of you.
