pure and simple...

takes my breath away


makes my heart sing


intoxicatingly fragrant


reminds me of simple days gone past


beauty like none other

Every good and perfect gift is from above, 

coming down from the Father 
of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.

James 1:17

speaking of gifts...come back tomorrow...
I'll get to that.

I love how your pictures look, aged. Do you do anything special with your pictures to get them to look like that? It is almost time for the end of our lilacs so I cut most and brought them in.
