“When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.”
~~~ Cree Prophecy ~~~
It almost seems like there is a whole little world encased in this one drop of water, hanging from the very end of a lily leaf. A little bit of magic here! 🙂
It’s amazing what you can see taking a back road to the other side of town…at least in my neck of the woods. 🙂 This field of wild mustard looked like it stretches all the way to the base of the hills in the distance. A beautiful sight to behold!
The Gerbera Daisy is part of the sunflower family. Just looking at one of these flowers makes me feel happy because they remind me of a big, bright smiling face. I always have at least one flower in a vase next to my work space, many of which have been these beautiful daisies…and believe me, they have done wonders to keep my spirit lifted. How can anyone look at one of these flowers and not smile? 🙂
Out of an entire bouquet of tulips, this one lonely tulip has just ONE petal standing apart from all the rest with streaks of green. If this flower had been one of my kids, it would have been the one with the tattoos, I’m sure of it…”rebel tulip.” 🙂
“Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose, loveliness extreme…” ~ Gertrude Stein
I know, ANOTHER poppy photo…but it’s a different day, different angle, different color. 🙂 This one is orange. I love these flowers, I really do. They just kind of pop open, spread their petals out as far as possible, and amaze and amuse with how bright and beautiful they are. I read the other day that it has been said of these flowers “once seen, known forever”…and I think that must be true. They can be the brightest bright or the palest pale, but always, always so delicate and beautiful.
“When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.” ~ Chinese Proverb
This white lily is such a prominent flower, a large flower, with a trumpet shape and lots of fragrance. The word “lily” is derived from the Latin word “lilia.”
Is it no wonder that roses are ancient symbols of love and beauty? 🙂
