"In these stars of earth, these golden flowers"

'Lo,

For Mother's Day, we went up to Wisconsin where my grandparents and majority of our family live. 
My grandma loves gardening and designing and I like to take pictures in her yard.
One of my little cousins known on here as "Princess" was willing to model and take some pictures with me. 
Enjoy!







Pippin the Mysterious Mermaid...?


Spake full well, in language quaint and olden,
One who dwelleth by the castled Rhine,
When he called the flowers, so blue and golden,
Stars, that in earth's firmament do shine.

Stars they are, wherein we read our history,
As astrologers and seers of eld; 
Yet not wrapped about with awful mystery,
Like the burning stars, which they beheld.

Wondrous truths, and manifold as wondrous,
God hath written in those stars above; 
But not less in the bright flowerets under us
Stands the revelation of his love.

Bright and glorious is that revelation,
Written all over this great world of ours; 
Making evident our own creation,
In these stars of earth, these golden flowers.

-From Flowers by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
