a Little Flower


'Just living is not enough'
said the butterfly
'one must have sunshine
freedom and a little flower'
Hans Christian Andersen

I'm still in France
surrounding myself
with sunshine
freedom
and lots of little flowers

    PS We have lots of little purple flowers like this carpeting the ground at the moment as the Jacaranda trees share their blossoms.

  4. O saskia, wat een prachtspreuk is dat! Had ik nog nooit gehoord! Misschien gek om zeggen maar ze is me op het lijf geschreven. Je hoort me al aankomen zeker? Ik zou ze heeel graag in de sidebar van mijn blog zetten als jij dat niet vervelend vindt??
    Mooie, kleine, paarse bloemetjes trouwens!
    Groetjes,
    Marian
