Noble Art



Besides the noble art of getting things done,
there is the noble art of leaving things undone.
The wisdom of life consists in the
elimination of non-essentials.

Such a great quote. I totally agree! That butterfly shot is amazing!

Mrs.E ~ I thought it a great quote too. All too often we are more concerned with what we think we should be doing instead of just living from moment to moment.

That butterfly was probably fresh out of it's chrysalis. They are easier to photograph then. I should have more of these around soon, as the caterpillars demolished my fennel plant.

Have a nice evening ~ FlowerLady

I agree with Mrs. E about your post. Words and the image...so beautiful. I'll be back.

Hello Kanak ~ thank you for your kind words. I've noticed that you and I grow some of the same things. I look forward to learning more about your country and your life there by visiting your blog. You've posted some great pictures.
