Longfellow, Oriental Poppy and Lettuces

1   I was reminded today of the importance of kindness and remembered these words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine,
Kind words, and Kind deeds.”
2    Our Oriental Poppy has started to open. I love how the petals are all so tightly folded up.
