Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.~ Theodore Roethke
Has it been raining out your way?
It has been damper than damp here & so funny because it hasn't been very heavy, just a constant cold dripping but the roads flooded & we had to wade across the yard.
It has been pretty miserable. I know because the cats have slept with their noses tucked into their tails all day long & even Kirby won't go outside unless he's desperate. Dank & gloomy all round. And cold. Bitterly, bitterly cold.
And yet...I have been watching with delight the lichen. Yes, it really is that rich golden pumpkin colour. I think it's pretty lovely myself. What do you reckon?
