a field of lilies

on a bright summer day
a place to recharge the spirit
and remember that each moment is a gift.
this post is dedicated to my hard working baby brattcat.

Bonjour sweet friend,
I've enlarged this picture, I saw your words, and...sundely I was completely there in this magic place, with the lovely lilies, the green path, my imagination was free...and I felt peace, and some tears in my eyes as well.
And the music starts here in my notebook, so perfect melody:
"The way you look tonight"singing Rod Stewart.Please don't ask me about the music, I also can't understand, why this music about "night"and your wonderful DAY LIGHT PICTURE mix, but...it's fabulous, I'm sure! :)
Do you know this song?
well, let me enjoy one more time this gift that you gave to us in this morning.
Thanks so much and please have a wonderful day there.
Lucky Brattcat!
Léia

That is a delightful landscape. I can see why you may choose to endure the many months of being snowbound if this is what is at the end of the rainbow. Gorgeous ...

Very picturesque.

Lilies of the Field? I think I've been here. I know I've been here. And yes, it is a luxurious field of colors.

This looks so idyllic. I would love to have space for a garden like this.

JM said...

This is SO pretty! It reminds me of a swiss chocolate box cover. :-)

Kate said...

And, this is another lovely photo that could easily be a coveted painting.

What everyone said. . . I also enlarged the photo and felt 'there' on those green paths. Your painterly eye brings us another photo-painting. I hope baby brattcat enjoys the calm of your offering.

What a beautiful spot to salute nature.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful!

Not only do I know the song, Leia, I've actually sung it in public as part of a community chorus. We didn't do it quite like Rod Stewart, though. Thank you for your wonderful comment.

This is an idyllic, pastoral scene. Currier and Ives might have tried to reproduce this, if they had he talent of you behind a camera lens.

There is something about the photo that just draws you in...the sky, the trees, the red of the building, the grass, the flowers. I can here the insects buzzing in the background. Absolutely beautiful.

You could have used this for the Bright Colors theme a few days ago. Like the others I clicked to enlarge the picture. I see a wonderful variety of day lilies. I also see numbered stakes in each bed. I think there is more order in this chaos of color than meets the eye. Interesting.

What a lovely place to wander! I took the advice of others and enlarged it so I could drink it all in. Beautiful!

Oh my, this is a lovely tribute, I'm sure Wordsworth would have loved this.

Randy said...

Wow what an amazing place to call home! Lovely shot!

Bob Crowe said...

Well that's a little piece of paradise. Ain't nothing looks like this out here in the middle.

VP said...

This look like a painting but it is much better than most paintings I see now.

Wonderful landscape of flowers. Very pretty.

Jacob said...

A very nice tribute to Baby Brattcat! This sent my imagination soaring back to when I was a child...I would have loved to have played in this garden, running through the rows, smelling the scents and drinking in the beauty!

Then I snapped back to reality. My goodness, it would take a lot of work to keep all this looking as good as it does now!

This is one of my favorite shots of yours. Beautiful!

Wonderful place!
