Shadows of Flowers and Plants

Happy Independence Day!


Take nothing but pictures.
Leave nothing but footprints.
Kill nothing but time.
- Motto of the Baltimore Grotto, a caving society


In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.

- Aristotle


See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.
- Mother Teresa


The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.
- Anne Frank
