"Hide not your talents.

They for use were made.
What's a sundial in the shade?"

  1. Love the quote and this looks like a jack in the pulpit but the leaves above are not what we normally see here.

      It is one of the species known as 'jack in the pulpit'... this is Cobra Lily (Arisaema). Yxx

  2. I.LOVE.THIS.QUOTE!!! I read it 3 times out loud, and my eyes teared up! I have talents that should be in use, and have been in the shade for years now. When I was in the work force, I used them every week end, then I retired and used them even more but for some reason when my friend Rich died, my talents gave up.

  4. What a stunning picture; could it be a Darlingtonia? There is a bog of them a few miles north of us; I'm sure they're known by other names. An excellent quote, too.

  5. Hi Yam - excellent quote ... a great one to read and remember - perhaps we don't realise our talents, or others have put them down. I think I'm a late 'bloomer' ... cheers - Hilary
