A weathered bedpost in the woods.

Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.

21. A morning rose

Lit from within.

Life is as simple as a rose — there’s nothing complicated about it — and yet it is mysterious.  Although there is nothing complicated about it, we are not able to comprehend it through the intellect.  You can fall in love with a rose, you can smell it, you can touch it, you can feel it, you can even be it, but if you start dissecting it, you will only have something dead in your hands.

Another chance to enjoy daylilies. (24 July 2016)
Another chance to enjoy daylilies. (16 July 2016)

I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity.

~ Jil Sander

When I left the Wabi-Sabi Ranch to go on my summer adventure, our daylilies had finished their season.  Being back in the Bogs where the warmer seasons are usually behind us out here on the Eastern Shore and south of the Mason-Dixon Line, allowed me the luxury of second season of daylily delight.

This post is in response today’s prompt from The Daily Post:  Luxury.
