Today's heart-shaped seed pod is dedicated to a dear friend of mine, Pam J . She and I are both excited about growing plants from seeds, and because we live in places where it is very hot and dry during the summer, we are sharing seeds with each other in the hopes that we'll have good luck this way! It's been wonderful getting to know her, and a joy to visit her photo stream too. We even have similar luck with butterflies, lol! Take a look at her lovely Grey Hairstreak! I hope that you'll take a peek at her pictures too. Pam is so nice and has a heart of gold! I am so happy that we met! :)

Khalil Gibran (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. Wikipedia: Khalil Gibran

Janet.. this is SO beautiful.. the backlighting is PERFECT ! STUNNING!

Coincidentally (twins seperated at birth?) I discovered Gibran in the early 70's through"The Prophet" and he is still my stress breaker read.His calmess and spiit are glorious.

Looking at this particular picture makes me think: Japan! Not sure why, maybe because of the red, maybe because of the ZEN-feel, maybe it's all together. I particularly like the rim-lights. Very beautifully composed and presented.
