In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends.

  1. This beautiful sentiment allowed me a smile with my coffee this morning. Thank you, Janet.

    Beautiful Janet! I am missing flowers! A long winter. Hope you are well!

    • It has been a long winter, Nicole, and I’m missing flowers, too. My husband got me some inexpensive but beautiful flowers for my birthday and over a week later, they’re still cheering up the living room and us. That will do for now.

      I’m doing well and hope you are, too. SO ready for spring.

    So simple yet so eloquent.

    Janet, I love the intense Orange on this flower. 😀

  5. joey says:

    Ah, yes. Happy Friday!

  6. Dan Antion says:

    It’s been a long time without color in our world. Thanks for this.

    • Happy to help, Dan. Hopefully it won’t be too long. Snow might be in our future for tonight, but the amounts I’ve heard vary wildly. I’ll wait and see in the morning. 😉

    A nice pop of color in our week of grey rainy skies, Janet. Thank you.

  8. Jet Eliot says:

    Such a cheerful reminder of the approaching spring, good for March days when it still feels like winter. Wonderful post, Janet.

    • Thanks, Jet. There are rumors that we may get a lot of snow tonight/tomorrow, so we’ll see. Still feels like winter right now, but it’s supposed to be warmer next week. We can but hope!
