Happy Itchy Furry Friday :)

'Scuse me, is it furry Friday, yet?

Please excuse my lack of posts and visits, folks. It's that crazy time of year in the office, and I just can't wait for it to be Friday. I felt bad that I didn't have a treat for this furry squirrel found in the Boston Public Garden the other day. Right after this shot was taken, he was spooked by an approaching dog, and ran away as fast as squirrelly possible.

Silent Sentinels

"The oaks and the pines, and their brethren of the wood, have seen so many suns rise and set, so many seasons come and go, and so many generations pass into silence, that we may well wonder what "the story of the trees" would be to us if they had tongues to tell it, or we ears fine enough to understand."
~Author Unknown, quoted in "Quotations for Special Occasions" by Maud van Buren, 1938

"Inside each one of us is a beautiful flower garden.
This is the garden of the soul. With each lesson
we learn, the garden grows. As we learn together,
our individual gardens form a tranquil paradise."

About to Bloom

"Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here."

~Zenkei Shibayama
