Queen Anne's Lace ~ Wildflower Elegance

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common - this is my symphony
~ William Henry Channing

Such a beautiful, delicate flower...and good words to live by.

Btw: I'm so excited about seeing my first hummingbird moth. We have them all over our honeysuckle. Before seeing your post, I would have thought it was a bee of some kind...now I know better. Thank you for helping me take a closer look at the things around me. :)
