This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be' glad in it...Psalm 118: 24

A bee spends hours
To enjoy the Marigold,
And other fall flowers
Ere' it is too cold...

    OUTSTANDING in the lightbox!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do not know that I have ever seen red Marigolds, always yellow or orange. If I saw one, then I did not realize that it was a Marigold. I love how vivid the red is and the bee in it is like icing on the cake : )
