It’s Monday and I need some cheering up so I am posting fun from my yard this week. I don’t think Heaven’s Sunshine does the Macro Monday but I am listing it that way because it is a macro, plus it can be for Cee’sFlower of the day. Flowers make me smile so here is a big ole smile courtesy of google to go with the flower…
I could not get a good shot of his legs to show they were covered in pollen. As you enjoy the beauty of nature, I hope you smile. When you smile, people wonder what you are thinking. Keep them guessing…and remember to be kind.
Cee’s wonderful prompt for daily flower pictures is probably one of my favorites this year as my yard is exceptionally pretty this year. Nothing died, which is remarkable with my brown thumb, maybe a little greenage is starting to show.
I too chose Dahlias for today as I two different varieties.
Flowers are as individual as people are with each having it own beauty and love to share. As you share yourself with others remember to share the beauty from within and pair it with kindness.
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’sFOTD 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.
Cee’sFlower 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.
