i can promise you a rose garden

..or any other kind of flower garden! they’re all  here for the magnificent picking, even if only in 2d on a laptop. but sometimes the image is as strong as the real thing, especially with all the incredible photographers out there capturing their beauty.

(all images via pinterest)

i put this group of flowers together after my yoga teacher had us imagine putting our faces into our favorite flower or bouquet while breathing deep.


my faves are peonies but i’m a sucker for ranunculus too. in class i could feel their cool petals and smell the freshness only flowers deliver. he said it was a good way to stop and calm down too, using the imagery and memory of our favorite flowers smooshed in our face. (maybe i added the smooshed part but i’m passionate  :)

i’ve been playing with it all day and should make sure to get something for the house tomorrow. nothing beats the real thing and it only takes one flower to make major magic.

bonne nuit!
