Gratitude and Roses

“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” Henry Ward Beecher

A friend I’ve ┬áhad for more than two decades recently succumbed to cancer and was laid to rest. She fought bravely and throughout her entire battle she resisted and she lived! While out on my walk the next day, camera in hand, I was very aware of the joy and beauty that surrounded me, of the miracle of life and the wonder of simply breathing.

I am grateful to have known her and to have been inspired by her indomitable spirit, so┬átoday I am sharing these miniature yellow roses in honor of her life and our friendship. It’s always a good day to appreciate good friends.

Dandy Mini Daffodils

The daffodils in our garden cannot wait any longer for Spring. The miniatures are bursting with little blooms, although it took some doing getting low down enough to take some pics!
