“True friendship is like a rose. We can’t realize it’s beauty until it fades.” ~ unknown
Ah, I have tried several time to photograph the simple, but lovely, Knock Out Roses in my garden…each time with no success. Underexpose! Why did it take me so long to remember to underexpose? Lesson learned.
After living in an apartment and moving to a new home with no grass or much of anything green, I finally have flowers in my ‘garden.’ Not many, mind you! But yes…the foundation for a garden has been laid; paving stone path and all!
Strolling through my garden path each morning, checking on the ‘babies,’ is a lovely morning meditation.
Today I am thinking on this:
There is Nothing Wrong With You
There is nothing wrong with you. Just because everyone doesn’t agree with you, it doesn’t make you wrong. You have a unique vision and personality. It is up to you to nurture and expand it so that you can optimally live your best life. There is nothing wrong with you at all. You are exactly the way you are meant to be. (from Daily Meditations for ‘Tough Times’)
A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime. ~unknown
This fun image was taken for a photography forum macro challenge — NO flowers allowed! I’ll assume you realize it is a close-up of an ‘antique’ flash bulb! 😉
