Todays Flowers #68

These purple mums were in three bushel baskets in front of our house for Autumn. Luckily, I took this picture before the cold weather came. This coming week, all three plants need to be tossed in the garage. I am sad to see such lovely flowers go. Instead, I should look forward to the next season which is usually a cold, snowy winter. Sometimes, winter can look like fairy land.

"Ginger and cinnamon fill the air
A patchwork of leaves lay everywhere
Cold, clean mornings and an indigo dawn
Crystal frost on the emerald lawn
Golden apple cider and delicious pumpkin pie
These are the things I love at Autumn time."

11/18/2009 Outdoor Wednesday #45


"Compare the serene and simple splendor of a rose in bloom with the tensions and restlessness of your life. The rose has a gift that you lack; it is perfectly content to be itself. It has not been programmed from birth, as you have been, to be dissatisfied with itself, so it has not the slightest urge to be anything other than it is. That is why it possesses the artless grace and absence of inner conflict that among humans is only found in little children and mystics."
.....Anthony DeMello, THE WAY TO LOVE



Photograph of a single rose taken on our backyard cement patio.




I was trying to obtain an unusual scratched background so I placed a single rose on a garbage can turned upside down.



A single rose growing in our garden. I cropped photograph to show only petals.

This week I am ready to take on the weekly challenge of recommending a site that I haven't visited before. Drum roll please. Go to http://maiasfotos.blogspot.com/ and behold the Pink Dahlias. Maiat has a wonderful knack at doing macro photography of flowers.

Oh my goodness. I can't believe that I ate the whole thing. I can't remember if I ate it for breakfast then lunch and finally dinner. Must have a bit of youngtimers. Oh my...chocolate is the best balanced diet yet. Does this mean there are no calories in this here candy bar? YEA!
FYI: Just in case you are interested in tasting this delicious chocolate bar here is the website to go to: www.bloomsberry.com.
