I spent two years in the Ozarks and spent a fair amount of time in the woods (ticks, chiggers, copperheads, watermoccasins are to be avoided) but the flowers like this are special. Thanks for the memories.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
