"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

  1. Ce bunatati aicea la tine si la propriu si la figurat...
    Ce frumos se deschid trandafirii. Mozaicul cu ei seamana mai degraba cu un vitraliu. Si iti multumesc pentru Enya. Am descoperit-o foarte tarziu, dar imi place enorm! Sper ca a fost placuta excursia!
    Te-ai pregatit sa faci vreun gem? Acum ar fi timpul...
    Eu am facut din cirese albe si zmeura!
    Zile minunate de iulie in continuare! Cu drag, Alexa! :)

    1. Buna Suzana!Vara aceasta trandafirul a fost o vedeta; a reusit pentru prima data sa infloreasca in continuu, chiar si cu cate 2 inflorescente, deodata, ceea ce a fost neobisnuit pentro o floare tinuta indoor...Muzica Enyiei imi place in mod deosebit, asemenea. Cat despre excursie, instanturile sunt dintr-un alt iulie, dar la fel de canicular; ideea a fost o paralela pentru "from time to time". Cat despre gemuri, anul acesta, mai rar... doar niste visine conservate pentru prajituri la iarna. Am remarcat ca desi piata abunda de fructe si legume, oamenii nu se mai preocupa de conserve asa cum se obisnuia. Dar pana la toamna mai avem timp, cum e o "vorba" arhicunoscuta. Cu siguranta, gemul de prune pentru clatite nu va lipsi! si trebuie sa fie grozave gemurile tale de cirese si zmeura!!
      O vara rodnica si plina de bucurii! multumesc de ganduri si salutari de vara insorita, asemenea!

  2. Hello Alexa, I always enjoy seeing the cute cattle. They have such pretty faces. Your flowers are lovely. Beautiful photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

    1. Thank you, Eileen! I remembered of this quiet and cute cow and also the scenery from another july, a peaceful one and warm july... And my hibiscus on balcony had some pretty flowers this month, as well, as in june. Many thanks for hosting at Viewing Nature/ Saturday's Critters. Have a great day and a good new week ahead!

  3. Beautiful photos and edits! That's a pretty window in the background of the first few photos.

  4. The cows are so cute. I love the hibiscus flowers and the cherries look delicious. Have a great week ahead.

    Enya is one of my favorite singers. Her songs are wonderful!

  12. I LOVE these peaceful photos...especially that breathtaking sky...

  13. red flowers, red berries. Red is a good color :)

  14. Hi! Nice collection of beautiful flower photos. Your mosaic photo is very interesting and very cool. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Minunat trandafirul, minunat! :) Trandafirul mamei face flori foarte rar, si nu tin mult; o prietena are unul care mereu infloreste - si tot in balcon il tine. Deh. :)
    O frumoasa incursiune prin... vara anilor. :)
    Iti doresc, cu drag, o saptamana minunata!

    1. Intr-adevar ca minunat spus, Diana!! drept mentionez ca nici noua, nu ni s-a mai intamplat sa infloreasca in aceasta maniera; l-am admirat pe maruntel si drept urmare, l-am imortalizat "uitand" degetul pe declansatorul aparatului foto...(*_*) lol.. De regula (vis-a-vis de ceea ce ai relatat despre trandafirul mamei tale), la al nostru aparea o singura inflorescenta la cateva luni distanta. Acum cred ca fie a avut o perioada de timp buna, propice, fie e la maximum si a dat tot ce a putut, uimind...
      Multumesc de ganduri si asemenea cu drag, o saptamana placuta si insorita! toate cele faine sa fie!

  23. Beautiful flowers , and those beautiful cherries are making me smile! Memories of when I was younger ...I don't preserve food any more for just the two of us and because we travel, but I used to enjoy it. Wonderful to have the taste of summer on your pantry shelf for next winter!
