Language of Flowers

Say it with flowers,
pure essence of expression
love's distillation...

Linking with
Haiku my Heart
Recuerda mi Corazon

I recently read a book called "the Secret Language of Flowers". The book was so so but the parts about flowers and their meanings was fascinating.
This rose has a lot to say!
Happy Friday, Sue!

oh yes to Kim...I read that book recently too...

how very interesting to read the Victorian era thoughts on different flowers, one of my favorites, the lowly sunflower did not fare well.

This post takes my breath away!!! WOW!! The rose is exquisite and the words so tender! Wishing you well! Cathy

Dear Sue, I love this haiku and your rose radiates all the way across the pond to me here in the late evening, a light that draws me in and fills my heart with beauty...

This is gorgeous and would be wonderful to share with I Heart Macro tonight (Saturday)

I do hope you'll participate in the Gratitude Quilt this year… information about what it is and how to participate can be found @ this link

If I already asked you and you sent me something, please forgive me for asking again. I'm trying to reach as many people as possible. I don't use last names and so when I look at the quilt so far and see the same first name more than once I'm not certain if it was from you or someone else with the same name.

A Heady Afternoon

All day long we'd be nursing baby and bunny, dress on, dress off, wrapping baby up, washing baby, changing nappies, swaddling her in a blanket, laying her in bed.... I mean the whole day! Then when it was bedtime for granddaughter Connie, of course baby and bunny had to go too... No one has taught her this deep nurturing behavior, it is as natural as breathing... I think this might be why these female doll-like creative expressions keep popping up, why I so enjoy playing with my images, expanding them in the digital playground. As a child I remember the books that had the perforated pull out paper dolls with interchangeable mix and match wardrobes, where the dresses hooked onto the dolls by tabs at the back, this fascinated me. I have the natural desire to nurture, this seems to be deeply seated within the feminine. When looking around 'blogsphere' a profusion of nurturing sister circles have appeared, nourishing and flourishing!  I have come to the real


A Continuum ~> continual sequence of ~> elemental change ~> By far this is the most difficult post written by myself, ever. I have not visited this place for sometime... I have been 'lying low' as an old friend used to put it, not low through depression or anything like that but since my love passed away parts of my known world have passed too. I have difficulty recognizing the landscape around me, I'm lying low so that I can absorb some of the new terrain. I am still quite dizzy, it's going to take some time... Much of what I wrote about here in this space would involve a brief glimpse of 'my love' and our life together. I had thought of closing 'Finding my Bliss', for a pivotal part of everything this blog has stood for seemed on the surface of things to be missing! But as the days have come and gone I am beginning to look at things in a different light and although I am grieving for my love I find I am l feeling his prese
