ABC Wednesday : The Letter D


Daisy

The daisy's for simplicity and unaffected air. — Robert Burns



Dusty Miller
If you walk on the Cape Cod beaches you'll find Dusty Miller nestled with poverty grass.



Dill— one of my favorite spices
The word dill comes from the old Norse word dylla, meaning to soothe or lull. It dates back in writing to about 3000 B.C., where it was mentioned in Egyptian medical texts. —About.com



Droplets on a leaf


How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on”— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  3. What a great post for the letter D. The daisy is so lovely as your beginning shot as are the droplets of water for the last one. I enjoyed all of the photographs but those two were my favorites.
