“After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.” ~William R. Alger

In The History and Language of Flowers the Daisy means, cheer.  We are experiencing a lot of gray days this Spring,  it is raining incessantly.  The quote above reminded me that no matter the gray skies, my heart and soul should be full of cheer.

  1. Thank you for reminding me to full of cheers. I am trying. I am such a struggling photographer that I appreciate your sharing your settings with us. I love have you as my teacher.

  2. Your experience of this spring sounds identical to mine.
    As a matter of fact, I am not even sure we will see a spring this year.
    One heavy frost after another, gray, gray days, and incessant rain.
    HOWEVER….this photograph is just beautiful! I love the light and the color.

  3. THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS is one of my favorite books, Robyn. Your photography of flowers should be listed as a category of its own: “enlightenment” 😉
    Be of good cheer, dear Robyn; you bring cheer to all of us.

  4. What a great shot, and that’s coming from someone who does not necessarily like flower shots. And while you complain about your spring showers, we are having lots of spring sun. Today was 85, the nights have been gorgeous- we’ve been sleeping with the window open and just a sheet for cover. In another month or two we will be complaining about the heat and having the air conditioner in our home running all day and night!
