God in a Flower

The daffodils bloomed at the farm last weekend.

Sometimes I feel guilty picking them, but I succomb

to their beauty.

They bring the feeling of spring, and growth

and warmth.

They fill many places in my home with their unexpected


I am looking forward to their bright colors and

smells that fill the air.

I had the lovely ole' stomach flu that has

been circulating around here.

All weekend indoors and feeling kinda

tired and sluggish while I recoup.

Hope this Monday finds you in good health.

    I know what you mean about cutting them. I rarely cut my flowers, but my daughter always cuts them when she comes home, and they are beautiful indoors and the ones out still look ok too.

  2. I always feel guilty picking flowers, but they are so beautiful! Love the processing in the first shot!
