My little sister asked to have her hair curled. My other sister decided it was a perfect opportunity for a photoshoot. I decided it was the perfect opportunity for a photography post! (Featuring quotes, of course. When I write a blog post, expect quotes.)
So, in the style of Allison @ A Farm Girl’s Life, I present to you:
wildflower sisters, featuring quotes
I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been
. . .
For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green
// J.R.R. Tolkien //
With freedom, flowers, books, and the moon, who could not be perfectly happy?
// Oscar Wilde //
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
// Henry Wadsworth Longfellow //
The lovely flowers embarrass me,
They make me regret I am not a Bee –
// Emily Dickinson //
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
// William Butler Yeats //
Now rings the woodland loud and long,
The distance takes a lovelier hue,
And drowned in yonder living blue
The lark becomes a sightless song.
// Alfred, Lord Tennyson //
We shall be led in peace and go out with joy
And the hills before us will raise their voices
And the trees of the field will clap their hands as the land rejoices
And instead of the thorn now the cypress towers
Instead of the briar the myrtle blooms with a thousand flowers
And it will make a name, make a name for our God
A sign everlasting that will never be cut off
// Andrew Peterson / Isaiah 55:12-13 //
What do you think of this type of post? Would you like to see more quotes and/or photography on here (or not)?
Have a lovely week, my friends!
Until next time,
