Study the science of art.
Study the art of science.
Develop your senses-
especially learn how to see.
Realize that everything
connects to everything else.”

    • Thank you , Nadia 😊 The two shots of the lake in the background are at Jones Millpond, along the Parkway towards Yorktown , taken in early June . The other phones are from our garden this week . The Asclepias, where the bees are feasting in the first photo , also grows along the edge of the pond . The purple flowers by the pond are the famous Yorktown onions (Allium ) . We live surrounded by incredible beauty .

  4. Nice quotes, lovely photos 🙂
