What a wonderful photo, and I like the quotation from Clarence Day. I'm sure it must be the same Clarence Day who wrote one of my favorite books, "Life with Father"!

That flower (is it a zinnia?) simply glows!

A LOVER OF YELLOW

A lover of yellow just may,
When given the floor, have her say
About the bright shade
That butters the glade
Like toast on a hot summer’s day!
