“Happiness cannot come from without.
It must come from within.
It is not what we see and touch
or that which others do for us which makes us happy;
it is that which we think and feel and do,
first for the other fellow and then for ourselves.”
–Helen Keller

That is a beautiful garden of flowers. What are the yellow flowers please? They look familiar somehow but I can’t place what they are.

The yellow flowers are golden glow. They’re an old-fashioned perennial… and a bit invasive… but they’re also beautiful, I think.


I wish everyone could learn this simple truth. If someone isn’t happy with themselves, they never will be happy no matter what they have or what they do.
