Floral Friday

Flower Photography, Pink Flower, Floral Friday

Flowers have to make their way through the dirt in order to blossom. Their beauty and energy should help to remind us of the possibilities of life and that when times are hard we need to find the strength to push through to get past it.

Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie for next month's theme.

Did you take this picture yourself? It's lovely! "Flowers have to make their way through the dirt in order to blossom. Their beauty and energy should help to remind us of the possibilities of life and that when times are hard we need to find the strength to push through to get past it." I think that is such a sweet and encouraging comment; often we need a metaphor to take ourselves in the right direction! Rosemary X

Aw such a beautiful photo and quote! I love the idea of this link up--it totally pushes the "have time to stop and smell the flowers" idea, which I think is really cute! :)
