“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” Helen Mirren

Doggie Costume Contest

I’m in love with all these beautiful doggies. I had a blast taking photos of them in their cute costumes. The winner was one of the two dogs dressed as the Pope, and for popularity won the dog dressed as a lion.

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.” Milan Kundera
