Monday Inspiration!

I took this picture last year at Bell’s.  (Yes, I take a lot of pictures there!) I am IN LOVE with the landscaping.  The front has a lot of lavender and fox glove.  The beer garden has a lot of different types of flowers that are beautiful but not too organized.  I love gardens that look like they weren’t planned.

It’s nice to have a place to go to in the city that’s full of green grass and flowers!  The beer is another draw too.

Happy Monday!

POETRY I LOVE: ‘Books’ by Billy Collins

When it comes to reading I generally pick up fiction.  I would say 90% of the time.  But, every once in a while I get into a poetry kick.  I generally don’t have specific poets that I go back to (I know, shame on me) but I will find something that I fall in love with and need to see the rest of that poet’s work.

This poem, for me, really captures the reading experience and my love affair with books.  Just beautiful!  I got this poem at poetryfoundation.org.

 

Enjoy!

Thursday Prose: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll

Thursday Prose: 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll

I took this photo at the Kalamazoo Nature Center last Summer. I was so excited to catch this photo with the bumblebee on the flower. I have a thing for bumblebees. Definitely top five cutest bugs. Since I don’t have a zoom lens for my camera yet, I was about three inches away from this little guy. Luckily, bumblebees aren’t aggressive.

Enjoy!

In case you are curious, fuzzy caterpillars are the cutest.
