Water, water...

Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor;

canst not be defined,
art relished while ever mysterious.

Not necessary to life, but rather life itself,

...thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the
delight of the senses.
~~Antoine de Saint-Exupery,
Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

a place
 where everything is lovely,
even if it isn't,
 and everyone is charming and supportive
 and has written a little poem.

A bit of truth and humor written by Mise over at

Makes me smile every time I read it.

Does anyone know the name of these flowers?
I photographed them in a Florida tree last spring
so they're, no doubt, something tropical.

JoJo says these are blooms on a HongKong orchid tree, a lovely southern Florida tree. :)
Thanks, JoJo!
