Floral Frenzy

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~Walt Whitman

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning. ~Lydia M. Child

Fuschia Delight

Blogger's Community Photo Challenge last challenge until September is FLOWERS.

I took a few shots of the Fuschia I have hanging outside my front door this evening ~ playing around a bit with light settings and such, and found that this one taken in automatic using flash gave me the look I appreciated the most.

Fuschia Delight

I hope everyone is enjoying the spring months and wish you all a summer filled with warm breezes and days of fun and adventure (or, even better - a little R and R!)

Garden's First

Garden's First

Garden's First

Her delicate petals
cast lightly over
rays of gold
blue and silver folds
cupping the warmth
as she waits patiently...

and alone.
