Mad With Joy on the Trail to Looking Glass Lake

August 22, 2012 § 7 Comments

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us” – Iris Murdoch.

I hiked with the mister and a dear friend to Looking Glass Lake, near Mt Adams Washington this week. Along our path, so many wildflowers and so much joy.

Rosy Spiraea

Subalpine Mariposa Lily

Wiggin’s Lily

English Daisy

A busy bee and a pink paintbrush

Turtlehead

Lupine

Arnica

Miss Roo waits patiently as I ‘picture’ them all. What a wonderful walk…

“Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed” – Walt Whitman.

“Earth laughs in flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

“I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.” – Edna St Vincent Millay, Afternoon on a Hill.
