...the soft haze of a spring day...


All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
Woodrow Wilson 1856

i searched for the words.
sunshine and haze today.
as this is how the day.
has presented itself.
and i found this quote.
i hope your dreams come true.
just BE.

It would seem that this place is inhospitable for a flower to grow. Yet it does despite the odds, keeping its hope of growing. Which it does...

I'm having a break again, my son with his family keep us busy and it's nice to be free and enjoy short but beautiful summer....
Happy Sunday!

The spiky flower makes quite an unusual shadow against that wonderful old wood. Love your quote, too.

The alternating red and white makes me wonder if this is the striped section of our flag weathered outdoors in a garden?

Only after gazing awhile dreaming about the flower did this occur to me. I love images that tell a story.

I hope my dreams come true too (and hope there is no limit) and I hope yours do too! I did an audible gasp when I laid eyes on your image. Qualifies literally, as breathtaking!
