A patch of white David phlox is blooming just outside our bedroom window. It's such a beautiful and reliable plant: so far this year, the deer haven't touched it, and the butterflies can't get enough of the blossoms.

for putting me on to it!
I'm looking forward to doing more. It seems to be a good way to combine photography with calligraphy and some ancient wisdom.
