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!

    wow..sisters from another mother! I spent the day on the couch playing on Pinterest looking at flowers, then went to the store and bought two real orchids so I could see them in the house. I guess it’s been a pretty tough season all around in the Northeast. Blog friends have definitely been a blessing. Thank you!

      oh that is too funny…i think we had parallel lives yesterday. and i don’t feel guilty about couch surfing and pinterest one little bit! but today i’m vowing not to even go there!

    I sit on the porch with my first cup of coffee, trying to make sense of the week’s happenings and opened this lovely blog. It changed the focus of mu thoughts from tragedy to joy and beauty. It is ointment for my soul. I’ll share it with friends, and as usual, they will thank me for sending it. In turn, I thank you so much for you blog(s) — especially this one.

    Hi Claudia,
    Lovely photos. Flowers indeed are so healing and inspirational in their quiet elegance. It always amazes me how they can transform a room by just sitting on a table.
