Remember in all you do, try to do it with kindness. It brings out the glow of all you touch.
I have become a fan of pansies, even the miniature look alike that I can’t remember the name of. The deep rich purples are a favorite and have the best fragrance.
Purples seem to be a theme this year in my front yard with pansies and verbena. A rich refreshing color.
Cee’s fun Flower of the Day prompt challenges us all to see the beauty on nature. My post today takes this a step further in showing the cycle of life in a day lily. They are called day lilies as their bloom last only a day to a day in a half but the life cycle of that bloom is well over a week if not two.
The Life Cycle
The life cycle is not long for those like me
for we start very small as you can see.
My siblings and I, we number at six
On the same long shoot that looks like a stick.
With each passing day we grow to our size
Stretching our pods with goals to maximize.
The sun is so warm and helps us to grow
We all hope to open and put on a show.
Some of us grow slow and some grow fast
But the life of our bloom is one that wont last.
The life cycle is short, but shed not a tear
For behold we will come back year after year.
For those of us who so enjoy your flowers, it does get sad at the end of the season when they go to sleep or die. But we are renewed in hope knowing when spring returns they also will return.
Enjoy the beauty, love and peace of flowers and remember to share their beauty and kindness with others as they share theirs with you.
Enjoying Cee’s FOTD brings out the beauty of nature. So many lovely things to see. We have always heard the line “grass is not necessarily greener on the other side of the fence” so today I feature redness on the other side of the fence.
Verbena is always a favorite for its variation in color and bright happy look. Spread kindness like the flowers spread happiness and watch the world change for the good.
The Flower Girl
A girl so pretty
With pink flowers to wear and
White flower earrings
Fun with Haiku’s can make you smile. Play often, smile lots and always be kind.
Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge is always fun to see the beauty that spring and summer gives us with varied colors and shapes of flowers. I too am showcasing the dahlias in my yard. Hope you enjoy and come along with us to share your flowers.
And as you enjoy the beauty of the season, remember the beauty of kindness and let it shine from you.
My flower today is my lilies – my red ones are now opening up fully, I have them in two separate spots in the yard. But coming soon are my daylilies. The buds are really full this year.
Come join in and show us the beauty you see in flowers and such. And as always, remember to be kind.
Good morning all. I bring you a little encouragement this morning as some of us are beginning to be able to get out a bit and try to resume life…cautiously. We are having a beautiful morning today but it will get hot as the day goes forward, so I bring you some early morning freshness from my yard and some heartfelt expansion from my morning devotion.
The pictures below are from my own yard this morning as the flowers are starting to open and express their beauty as God had intended.
I love this time of year where I can share my love of flowers with others who also love flowers. Cee has a wonder challenge with Flower of the Day where we see all sorts of plant life, such a fun challenge. Today, I am sharing my lilies. My white are open, and my red ones are just starting. I purchased some yellow one this year and they are open as well. My day lilies are just now starting to bud so those will be beautiful mid summer.
And I remind you as always, the value of kindness is a value that can never be measures.
