I have a thing for flowers. Many of us do. One of my very favorite pastimes ( a form of meditation really ) is to buy flowers for myself and arrange them throughout the house. I lose track of an hour, sometimes two, cutting and arranging, selecting the perfect vases and scattering the finished arrangements throughout my house. Every now and then, I get a hankering to photograph my favorites. Today I am sharing a few of those images with you from a collection I captured in 2015. It is Valentine’s Day after all. And so, here is my gift to you.
“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.” —– Iris Murdoch
“I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.” —Georgia O’Keeffe
“I paint flowers so they will not die.” — Frida Kahlo
All the stars are a riot of flowers.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince
This last little flower, I grew myself. Happy Valentine’s Day. xoxo Deb
