Summer Valentines

“You know you’re in love
when you can’t fall asleep
because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Theodor Seuss Geisel
“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
William Shakespeare
“We’re all a little weird.
And life is a little weird.
And when we find someone whose weirdness
is compatible with ours, we join up with them
and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—
and call it love—true love.”
Robert Fulghum
“I want
To do with you
what spring does
with the cherry trees.”
Pablo Neruda
“Have enough courage to trust love one more time
and always one more time.”
Maya Angelou

    Maya Angelou’s quote was perfect for me! I am married for the 3rd time and it was hard to go there…after two betrayals and a broken heart. I am sharing this post with my husband, we connect over many things and one of them is our landscaping business, we love plants! The pictures and words are so complementary! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Beautiful posting! Great quotes and I love how you used heart-shaped leaves for many of your pictures. Great Job!
