At my friend Cat‘s garden one afternoon, I was stopped in my tracks by this pretty vignette: a bubbling fountain with a plucked orange flower catching the ripples, and ballerina-skirted purple coneflowers dancing behind it.

Cat is so good at creating eye-catching moments like this.

She teases me about how I always take a picture of her “hippie” St. Francis statue. I think of him as looking more Celtic, but it’s true that I adore him and his offering of blue glass and a stone heart.

As storm clouds moved in, I admired a Maximilian sunflower stretching sun-rayed flowers skyward. Yay for summer rain, for simple flowers, and for friends’ gardens.
