Dahlias in my garden

Some days can be too warm

It's been so warm lately. The temperatures have been soaring. Don't get me wrong I am grateful for the sunny warm days but some days are just too warm.

The flowers must truly love he sunshine as the dahlias in my garden look so pretty.

"What a desolate place would be a world without a flower!  
It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome.  
Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars the flowers of the heavens."  
-  A.J. Balfour 

Fragments this week:

The week did not start off well. My uncle passed away in India peacefully in his sleep.  A truly blessed death for him but a shock for all of us. May he be at peace. 

I finished reading The Celestine Prophecy. I admit that though it's a good read, I enjoyed it more the first time round.

I am now reading Ramayana The Game of Life Book 3 - Stolen Hope. The Ramayana is one of the great historical epics of India and chronicles the life of Lord Rama. The Ramayana is one of my favourites of all time and I never tire of reading it.

The next book on my list to read is Ruchira Khanna's Voyagers Into The Unknown.

I was going to post my painting of a dolphin for the letter D at ABC Wednesday but it didn't turn out so good.  The dolphin was okay, but the water was complete rubbish. I need a lot more practise in painting the ocean.

Have a great week.
