Clearly commercial but with an appealing, quirky message for those who are into the earth/eco thing.

"Don't rest on your laurels."

(I only recently found out the true origin (and meaning) of that saying) ... It's good advice too:

To rest on one's Laurels

This phrase means to be satisfied with ones previous achievements to the point of considering further achievements unnecessary.

Apollo

The laurels in this phrase refer to the leaves of the Laurus Nobilis tree. In ancient Greece laurel wreaths were a symbol of victory and statues. These laurel wreaths were associated with the god Apollo who adorned them upon his head. Laurel wreaths were often handed out to winners of the Pythian Games held in honour of Apollo.

Those who received laurel wreaths were referred to as a laureate. We still use the term laureate when someone receives a top honour, ex. a noble laureate. Although, noble laureates don’t receive a wreath today, they only receive lots of money.

By the 19th century, the term rest on one’s laurels began to be applied to individuals who had succumbed to laziness after a major achievement.

Once you achieve something great in life remember to continue to strive for greatness, and do not rest on your laurels.

I've got to be the 'Spring one' from those pictures ... lots on top (but if the truth were known - what looks like little roses or flowers dotted around blossoming in that foliage - in reality is little grey hairs showing through here and there - so to disguise them they're covered over with roses (or something  Coolnuts

I'd be more than happy with grey or white, even with (quote) "roses (or something)" for disguise....  razz
