beauty

"All this beauty; You might have to close your eyes." - The Weepies

We went for a walk yesterday and found a huge field full of foxgloves. The whole time we were walking, I had the Weepies in my head, so today I thought I'd share some of that beauty with you!











All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty;
We traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise...


You can ask about it
But nobody knows the way
No bread-crumb trail
To follow through your days
It takes an axe sometimes
A feather in the sunshine
And bad weather
It's a matter of getting deeper in
Anyway you can


All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty;
We traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise...




I can see you're new, awake
Let me assure you, friend
Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake
And what you make of it
Let me just say
You get what you take
From it, so be amazed
Whenever you stop...
You gotta be brave.

All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide (all this beauty)
And watch the sun rise.

- Lyrics by The Weepies

Oh...I love that song! (I was just listening to that CD in my van, on my way home from camping. :)

And what can I say about those foxgloves...unbelievably enchanting!!! You are so lucky. I've tried growing them in my garden for years, and it just hasn't happened. (I'm thinking these cold Canadian winters may be the culprit?)

Thanks for sharing 'all this beauty'. :)

Beautiful pictures! It looks a bit like what I see here in Cornwall. Maybe we're close to each other in location.

i always think of you when i see foxgloves because while we were talking on the phone for the first time, jon came to get me to show me the foxglove we had blooming outside in our front yard. he dragged me outside while we were talking aways. i had always seen the beautiful blooms in photos but never live...and we had one blooming in our yard. thinking about that conversation makes me smile this evening...

happy summer to you...
