Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

  1. Your pictures are beautiful and your quotes are great. Very thought provoking! Are the pictures your own photography?

  2. Hiya GG
    Interesting lighting.
    Don't quite agree with the quote. Maybe it sounds better in the original language :-)

  3. A garden full of tomatoes is an abundance - except when they stay green and you don't like chutney - that is a superfluity. A garden full of turnips, swedes and parsnips and nothing else is an encumbrance.

    I'm not sure about pomegranites.
