A Great Start



I think I have found a perfect quote for the opening page of our 2015 Summer of Doing Manifesto scrapbook album.

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."  Walt Disney

I found this quote over at Paper Turtle http://paperturtle.blogspot.ca/   Thank you Deb.

  1. Ah - so there will be a paper album of the extravaganza! Glad you found a quote that suited. I'm a big collector of quotes - just wish I could remember them all.

    Is the photo of your garden? Yet more iris I see - rather an unusual type...

    1. The paper album is a special, 6X8 with pocket pages, trying to make it easy to do. I did some practice photos so I can show here. I LOVE quotes and poems. This garden is right beside the patio. The yellow/purple Iris in the foreground was in full bloom this year. It is smaller but the tag says Bearded Iris. The peachy pink one was featured in pairs and the deep crimson behind is a garden or herbaceous peony and it also had many blooms. The tall green plant beside peachy Iris will be Oriental lilies in another month, the shorter greenery will be daylilies.

  2. I've been reading your comment to Lady Ella about the irises and lilies in your garden and your planting sounds lovely - day lilies are so pretty, aren't they? I am intrigued by your Summer of Doing book and looking forward to learning more. That's a very encouraging quote ...

    1. Alexa thank you for dropping by. I have been reading your blog for several years, I normally post under Mary-Lou with my personal email address. I think Day Lilies are one of my most favourite flowers, which I started "collecting" about 5 years ago. Locally everyone thinks Day Lilies are just the orange ones growing in the ditches along roadsides. They have become so much more and in so many colours.
