Tired but Good


Character is what emerges from all the little things you were too
busy to do yesterday, but did anyway.
Mignon McLaughlin~

I hope that quote is true....
I'm slowing down now, and I think I need a rest day.
I have been going 90 mph it seems, doing various things.
I need to go to bed early, so I'm going to cut this short.

I have been working on some new excursions to share with you,
but I haven't had time to craft the posts.
For now, I'll just share another photo from the Botanical Gardens.

I was so intrigued by the above pattern. I found it in one of the ponds.
It looks even more dramatic now that I have converted it to black and white.
It even fits my current mood, which is a little scattered.
I was channeling my energy, but now I'm all over the place.

You'll soon hear about everything that's been going on,
but for now......ZzzZzzZzz


  1. That is an astonishing shot. I think I see flowers within flowers, or...
    I'm not sure what it was because the black/white tricks my brain, but I really love this a lot!
    Sweet dreams.

  2. this is a thoughtful image ~ I enjoyed your reply on SS as well

  3. I hope you are well rested today.

    The patterns are amazing. You can see the flowering formations so well from this view.

  4. Yea I made it here. For the last few days I have locked up every time I tried to view your blog. Get some rest and yes slow down. That is what I am doing and it is doing great things for me.

  5. scattered, but with purpose, and direction, seems to me

  6. Wow! That's a pond??? I thought it was a mosaïque made of marshmallows and flowers (for real).

    Get some rest, beautiful ;-)

  7. Do not forget,
    in life,
    the journey
    is the destination.

  8. Yey! It's amazing.

    Hope you slept well.

  9. a day of rest sometimes is good- even if you only make through a half a day or if you ends up taking a week...

    you work is inspirational!

  10. Great blog. I've added you to my reader, so I shall return.

  11. That's an amazing shot. Incredible.

  12. Love that shot. I look for texture and patterns quite often, too. Sometimes more interesting that a whole scene.

  13. At first glance I thought this was a mosaic of some kind - beautiful!

    Thank you for your visit to my site and my moon photos.

  14. I'm joining you with the early zzz's tonight. I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve.

    I'll have to jot down that quote; it's too good to forget!

  15. What is that? It's beautifully geometric, but yet very natural looking. Great B&W.

  16. this is a stunning composition! you amaze me ...what an eye you have for knowing what will bring out the best in a photo! it makes me think of the oriental patterns created by mother of pearl or abalone shells.
    take care jessica!
    p.s. i believe and have lived that quote.

  17. very cool shot, I must go back and stare at it some more!

  18. wow what Is that plant? Really gorgeous...and perfect in b/w.

    Sleep. It's good for the soul =)

  19. What a unique image … I could get lost in it ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  20. stuning photo! The scattered pattern is gorgeous.
