Taking time…

Nobody sees a flower — really — it is so small it takes time — we haven’t time — and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

  1. Lovely shots 🙂 Do you know the name of the plant in the second photo? I was recently photographing this plant myself but have no idea what it is called!

  3. Gosh, this is such an important … and timely reminder. Why do we have such a hard time remembering this? This is Day 4 of ‘Dotti’s Slow Down’ pace. I’m retired yet I’d hurry, all day long, self-imposed deadlines and it was wearing me out. After only 4 days, I feel much more relaxed. Thank you for the reminder to keep doing this and how important it is!

  4. I love this delightful pink parade: soft yet vibrant. I love that you took that photo of the thistle bloom and it goes so perfectly with O’Keefe’s quote. That quote gives some insight into her thoughts why she chose to paint flowers so large. … I keep meaning to say that I think it’s cool how your blog background changes with the colours of your photo(s).

  5. Thanks so much, Sherry, for mentioning Focusing on Life in your blog today. Double thanks because that brought me over here and I I was so glad because your photos are such a feast for the eyes! Love every one! Thanks again.

  6. Looks like you and Georgia have a lot in common..like Beverly said…I also love your flowers in their natural state…they are all so beautiful…Glad you stop to smell the roses. I also love taking photo’s of flowers…thanks for sharing these lovelies.
