Narcissus tazetta daffodil

All flesh is grass, and all the glory of man is like the flower of grass. The grass withers and the flower falls off. But the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the Gospel is preached to you.

1 Peter 1: 24-25.
Three grape hyacinths with leaves.

Perfection is achieved, not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery French writer, poet , journalist and pioneering aviator. He became poet laureate of several of France’s highest literary awards.
An added few stalks of pink hyacinths.

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot forsee.

Marian Wright Edelmann born in 1939 is the founder and president emirata of The Children’s Defense Fund. Her father, a Baptist minister encouraged her education before he died from a heart attack when she was 14.
‘Beauty: the adjustment of all parts proportionally so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole. ‘
Leon Baytista Alberti 1404-1472 (Italian artist,architect,poet, priest,linguist and philosopher and founder of western cryptography.)

The last one I have added to the glass jug.
The most recent flower to open in the garden.

To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order or even to edit:

it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatise, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse.

To design is to change prose into poetry.
