  7. 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"!

  8. 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!
