Squirrel Day in Paradise: Quote It Saturday

Today is National Squirrel Day! I have a blogger friend who  is really into squirrels. Her nickname is SquirrelQueen and honestly, I go nuts over her blog,  Thru Squirrel Eyes.

A squirrel is just a rat with a cuter outfit!
Sarah Jessica Parker

If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.

George Eliot

 Living is no laughing matter: you must live with great seriousness like a squirrel for example - I mean without looking for something beyond and above living, I mean living must be your whole occupation.
Nazim Hikmet

The idea is that there is a kind of memory in nature. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels.
Rupert Sheldrake

Flowers on Saturday at Ewa's Blog

Also known as Crane Flowers, these exotic plants grow everywhere on my property. They definitely represent a brightly colored bird. They are fan-like, take lots of sunshine and they have banana shaped leaves. Birds of Paradise are native to South Africa. I'm so lucky to step outdoors and see them. Perhaps I'll cut some today and put in an elegant glass vase.


Have a wonderful weekend!
