Today's Flowers: A Rose from Yesterday

rose

Here's a rose from last summer. This one did its living in mom and dad's garden. I came across the image when I was searching through some SMS cards for some images I had captured in North Carolina at Christmas. Finding this delicate beauty stopped me in my tracks. Looking it over, I got to thinking how much has changed since last summer. Every beautiful moment passes as swiftly and subtly as a breath.  Life offers no guarantees. All we can do is show up, day after day, and hope for a little love and sunshine and goodness.

Today's Flowers

  1. I thought it was: show up, tell the truth, not worry about the consequences. And most important is the show up, even for ourselves.

    I am thinking of another, we are not judged by how much we are loved, but rather by how much we love. If we show up with an open heart, we snow up with love...it is our job. And if it was not returned....that is out of our control.

  2. This bit of delicate pink makes one want to show up. It won't be as long as it has been. You gotta show up daily so you won't miss out on anything.

  3. I love the old fashioned roses. I think they are more beautiful because they are not so perfectly shaped and they have a fragrance.
