 Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no; it is an ever-fixed mark, 

That looks on tempests, and is never shaken.

Summer Snail Fest is here!

Join me for a new snail image every day for the next 8 days.

Why are snails worth celebrating?

Because they’ve got tons of whimsical personality, sweet spiral shells, funky eyes,

– and after all the snail wrangling they’ve endured, my models have earned the extra exposure.

I see a lot of Queen Anne’s Lace when I’m out walking,

and I’ve wondered why I see a dark spot on some.

A closer look reveals it is actually a minuscule flower –

a drop of crimson placed in the center of bridal white.
