Vee's Note Card Party... bloomin' beauties

It's time for Vees Note Card Party, so here is my contribution, by now you've probably guessed I'm a leftover flower child.



The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.

What a beautiful poem by Blake....the flowers are gorgeous.
Hope your flood cleaning has come along...our basement was a write off, filling up our 3rd dumpster bin. Bad storm coming this Friday again...what a summer and I thought I was going to relax.
Stay safe...this Friday.
