I Love Flowers
I do have a new camera, but I am not able to Photoshop pictures, change them or even post them.
I wanted to share with you the fabulous flowers that greet me in my own yard. And how much I enjoyed just walking around, in sunshine, to just see them and smell them and touch them.
Flowers never fail me and I have great trust and respect for them. I do not have a very green thumb and never have the time to take a class, or read a book, or figure things out. Even without all the right qualifications, flowers just seem to like my appreciation and give me their best. I like the smell and feel of flowers. I like the wonderful colors of flowers. The dandelion and puff of seeds do just what they do best and with such bright attire.
I did not take pictures of the 12 rhododendrons in full or beginning bloom. I did not get down on my knees to salute the Woodruff under the hedge or attempt to show off the Japanese Strawberry, happy, white, profuse, faces that are the ground cover instead of bark or stone. I could not capture the subtle drop of the blueberry bushes (15) blooms. The fourth apple tree is in massive bloom, the crabapple tree is a pink pompom of finery although when I took picture of the deep maroon geranium, I was too close and did not use the right setting so it is a blob. The 100 year old Gravenstein tree lost all its petals in the last wind storm, the front yard tree seems to be taking a year off and the Liberty also suffered in the wind. Rhubarb is bold and dynamic and we have already enjoyed its sauciness.
Oh I wish you could smell the lilacs and the evergreen clematis….Hardy Gardenias are just starting to bud…A Pileated Woodpecker is on my neighbor’s tree – red headed attraction to my eye and lets me see the gorgeous pink dogwood a few houses down…
My children left me planted pots and a few moments endeavor, which brought me to the garden to witness this morning.
I am just dazzled by flowers and flowers and as the rain moves back in to knock the petals …I just needed to design an attempt to share…all the delight and gift that surrounds me at this moment in time.
I do so love flowers and they do not disappoint me….
How are you enjoying the moments? Do you love flowers? I am sure you must love Chocolate, does it ever disappoint?
I would also like to share with you a post that looks at the WOW factor with a lovely story, I think you might enjoy Julie’s post.
