Late Summer Flower

On a hike in the mountains yesterday, Mom found a beautiful late summer flower. My darling Mickeybear, I'm giving it to you! And I'll share a poem from one of Mom's favorite poets.



A little road not made of man,
Enabled of the eye,
Accessible to thrill of bee,
Or cart of butterfly.

If town it have, beyond itself,
'Tis that I cannot say;
I only sigh, -- no vehicle
Bears me along that way.

~ Emily Dickinson




Sent with purrs and whisker kisses!

That's a beautiful flower! Here in Tasmania, we are finally getting some late winter blossoms... a sign of warmer weather, I hope. I miss the sunshine.
