August blooms

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” – Veronica A. Shoffstall

Full disclosure: Someone did bring me flowers for my birthday this week, and they’re so gorgeous, so vibrant, that I was inspired to take a photo to share with you here. If August were a bouquet of blooms, this is what they’d look like!
 
Even if it weren’t my birth month, August would still inspire me to savor what’s left of summer’s “glory days” — just as I need to savor every year, every moment, I’m given.
 
Happy birthday, fellow Leos! Don’t wait to buy yourself (and someone else) a bouquet of flowers! — CL
