In Honor of Valentine’s Day

In Digital, Inspiration, Nature, Still Life

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
