Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

The pink flowers accompanying the Emerson quote are wild primroses that I transplanted. They used to grow along the edge of the herb garden, but have decided to live along the curb these days, so I let them. The red ones are a hanging basket of bougainvillea that I set in front of a "shabby chic" desk (more shabby than chic now) on the front porch that my daughter got at our hometown parish flea market. The irises were here when we bought the house twenty years ago. I don't know what variety they are, but I love them. They have such a delightful and refreshing fragrance. I wish I could bottle it.
