in time of daffodils (who know, e.e. cummings

13 Feb

in time of daffodils (who know, e.e. cummings.


in time of daffodils (who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how...

in time of all sweet things beyond

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)..

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes.



.in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,.
remember seek(forgetting find).


and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me

      I appreciate it, thank you! In the photos you can see how much the weather changed in one day…bright and sunny, then cloudy and dark, then light rain, then it poured. A friend and I got soaked but couldn’t tear ourselves away to take cover. It was a lovely time.

      Thank you very much, I’m glad you enjoyed them! It was great fun taking them, I always enjoy the botanical gardens at the Huntington. I have to go back though (darn!), there is so much to see I couldn’t fit it all into one day.
