Spring

7-30-14 010

Soon, we will see the vibrant colors of Spring.

Soon, we will smell the fragrance of lilacs and all other blooming flowers.

Soon, we will feel the texture of lush leaves and delicate petals.

Soon, we will witness bees and butterflies pollinating, and birds propagating.

Soon, we will experience the full wonder of this season.

And, if we keep our eyes, ears and noses open to her transforming beauty, Spring offers treasures we cannot make nor buy, but simply enjoy for free.

Spring also offers her greatest gift…Resurrection.

May our hearts be open to all that is Spring.

 

Delicate

Delicate is the flower of the Christmas Cactus. Christmas in March…how special is that!

She appears different from multiple angles. Like all things…each view unique.

Background affects the flower’s statement. As does that of people. Similarities?

Add a touch of blue sky and a bit more green. She could be mistaken for a different flower.

Sporting a brilliant pistil surrounded by soft, brush-like stamen. Simply beautiful.

Only a few flowers at the moment. Hopefully, more to come. Thanks for joining me! And thanks to Cheryl for fostering such a lovely plant.
