Je réponds à votre question .
Oui, la France est belle , mais ...tous les pays sont beaux : " make us mindful of the little things .....".
En France ou USA .
C'est la sensibilité du coeur qui fait la beauté : comme votre blog !

Laura- Where do you find all of your beautiful quotes?

Lynne: I have a lot of books! Honestly, if I can't come up with something and need to go searching I use this site. Most of the quotes there are nature-related in some way or another. I can waste hours just reading through the site.

Jean: Merci! Thanks for stopping by - wish my French were better.

Great butterfly picture. They never sit still long enough for me to get good photos.

A new one for me! Pretty, and so is that plant.

Laura: hairstreaks are so tiny - I was lucky it was a coolish day and this guy was doing a lot of sunning!

Sandy: Thanks Sandy! Really it's more like a weed - it's growing everywhere and would like to take over. I love the white color at this time of year and the bugs and butterflies really like it, so I let it go a bit.
