Hope blooms where flowers grow

“We each have a platform, access to tools, a change we’d like to make in the world around us. We each have a chance to connect, to see, to lead.” Seth Godin

This message inspired me this week to keep doing work that matters. When enough people care, beautiful things can happen in the world.

Flowers remind me of this hope.

Photographing daisies bring to mind carefree, happy days in the sunshine so I combined two of my favorites to produce one that expressed this hope visually.

May hope bloom where you are too!

Something Foxy for Mother’s Day – blooms still say it best!

Happy Mother’s Day! Mother’s day is usually brimming with pretty pink things and loads of gorgeous blooms. Lately I’ve heard advertisers pushing the “let’s  give Mom something more long lasting than flowers” line. I love gifts – who doesn’t? What they fail to realize though is that there is infinite joy in the moment of receiving a beautiful bloom – whether it’s in elegant and sophistically wrapped bunches or a posey of wild flowers!

Yes flowers are fragile and have a defined life span but so do we and there is beauty in that too and an opportunity to take a moment to reflect and be grateful for the magnificent way we are constructed and how wonderfully we are made!

Wishing all Moms a fabulously florally Mother’s Day!

Flowers and vases

Every now and then I get asked to produce a floral image with a specific tone or theme. My current project was a request to use green blooms. I decided to opt for green carnations and combined them with some white roses from my garden. This is the result.

Wonders in the garden

The walk home after the bustling activity of the school run is my time for some quiet reflection and focusing my mind for the day. What’s great when I get home is that the wonders in the garden greet me and there is always something to see and make me grateful for being here.
