Today's Flowers: Glorious Morning

From August 2, 2011

I came across this beauty at Hammocks Beach State Park in Swansboro, North Carolina, last Tuesday, where I spent the day working with other volunteers for the North Carolina Coastal Federation to build oyster shell sills along Jones Island.  What a day.  What a park.  This spectacular state park is spotless, inviting, peaceful, gorgeous.

  22. Flowers are so rich, yet they merely wallow in their own simplicity.

    I bet the park is inviting and beautiful because of volunteers like you who maintain it.
