See Hamburg

In this slideshow: scenes in and around one of Europe's great cities. When I look at it, I have a daydream of being a tourist there, where I'm transported by these images from the website of Dierk Haasis. Newly placed on his home page for the month of August, 2010. (I wrote about them in my other blog, Mary's Musings, yesterday.)

To Cut or Not to Cut?

Bring flower corpses into the house? A friend, whose opinion I greatly respect, condemns doing this. Well, I'd never pick a bouquet of wildflowers, or even take a single wild blossom from its place outdoors.

However, I look on a bouquet from a friend's garden differently. She grows her cultivars in order to harvest them, as well as to enjoy when she's outside. And I very much welcomed this one from her yesterday afternoon. She brought it for me to take out to my 92-year-old sister in the nursing home, when I visit her today.
