Everyones Highest Ideals

Our duty is to encourage
every one in his struggle
to live up to his own highest ideal.

Swami Vivekananda
19th century

Of Note: This is just one in a series of shots that captured perfectly the unfolding of a Datura flower in Marie's backyard garden. The seeds were from my Datura grown up here in northern Wisconsin that is overwintered in the house. These are prolific seed-bearers--one pod, which in some ways is as showy as the flowers, has at least 200 large seeds.

Today's Weather Report: Yesterday it got cloudy then showered off and on. Never more than 5 minutes. Today is supposed to be the rainy day--just in time for our fishermen guests who swear to get the best fish in the rain. We are so glad to oblige!
