flower power



happy saturday  guys, how are you doing tonight? i’ve been laying low for the past few days. working quietly and trying to grasp what happened this week.



like everyone, i’m looking for meaning in a brutal world. what gives me hope and inspiration are my fellow americans.



i can’t imagine why there is such duality in the world. how it can he both light and dark when the light is so bright.



i hope you don’t mind another flower post.




i’m obsessed with peonies and anything resembling them. even the photos make me feel better.

what is it about flowers? i find something healing and comforting in them.



i hope you do too. i did get an orchid for my bedside table and tulips for the entry. and they really cheered me up. i know it’s trivial but wanted to share what i guess is nature’s remedy in case you needed a boost too. well, i just thought i’d stop by and let you know i’m thinking of you.  have wonderful weekend!

spring has sprung



good morning and happy monday guys. it’s a rainy day here but april showers bring may flowers right? while i was obsessing over the weekend i came across a ton of pretty images and thought it would be a good start to a new week.



it’s been an emotional weekend around here and i want to stop and refocus. i’m dying take a deep breath and smell the fresh petals!



guess i’ll have to settle for the photos. that supposedly works just as well according to feng shui! (well, almost  :)





if you’re in a garden today, enjoy it and have a great new week!

days of wine and roses



good morning guys! how is everything going now that spring has sprung? it’s been early to bed and early to rise around here which has left little time for blogging and well, taking time to smell the roses.



candy girl is almost as obsessed with tpa as i am and we have finally come to a place where we can sit back and regroup instead of put out fires all day.



in celebration of having a moment of free time, i wanted to stop by and send some pretty flowers your way. maybe i’ll even pick some up for the apartment today and practice what i preach about having a bouquet around no matter how small. i’m sure i’d be obsessed with snapping a good shot of them if they were as delicious as these!     well, have a beautiful day and if you have real flowers in your life i hope you get a minute to  stop and enjoy them whether you shoot or smell them!
