Treasure hunt

I didn't find it, although I was standing exactly on a spot where it should have been located. Alright, I will try with another cache, also located near my home. Though, it was great fun, and I suppose that if there are even more people, especially children included in this treasure hunt, it is even more fun. If nothing else, we do not spend days inside behind the screen...Yesterday I finally started to read a book that I bought a long time ago. On the cover it is written: Time fades everything. Except desire.

I am not so sure that this is so true. Sometimes even desire fades...

Thank you for your tea-making instructions...I will try it out. My flowers are past their peak now, looking faded and tattered, but I will see what I can collect.

I recognize this dragonfly:) It is just like the ones by the pond I visit here...The friendliest type. I think it is so funny that I have met another person who chases dragonflies :)
(I found your blog on the "browser" page, while looking for people with an interest in Illustration.)

Try cutting the flowers and new ones might grow if the weather is still warm.
The dragonfly is Ruddy darter (Sympetrum sanguineum).
Oh, I wish I could draw and illustrate, but I don't have a hand for it. I am able to copy pictures but I can't create my own ones. A pity, as this is such a gift to have!

Any time away from a screen is time well spent, Pina. And yes, I think desire can sometimes fade!

I am glad that you share my opinion, Emily. I was thinking about it this morning again, and I still think the same.
