Stars of the earth

What a wonderful time of the year when yards and gardens come alive! Living on a barrier island has been a challenge, learning what works and what will not in this climate, soil, and exposure. But, oh, what a reward when you get it right!

"What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars the flowers of the heaven."

~~ A.J. Balfour
