Delicate Flower

Lavender mist, drenched in color
Fed by love and sun and water
Or petals wither, fade and pale
Saturate moss and leaves exhale
Treat with tenderness, gently nurture
Like a new love, delicate orchid

Inspired by Emily’s post… I was feeling pretty low on Wednesday, but flowers always make me smile. Especially the ones that bloom again and again.

  1. Flowers make me smile — and I love them outside growing far more than cut in a vase. Mom’s yard is full of gorgeous flowers of all kinds — she’s pretty much a self-taught landscaper. I, on the other hand, kill almost everything I try to grow. ๐Ÿ˜€ Feel free to laugh at me. I am a killer! Careful or I may overwater you.

    Sorry you were down… but glad you’re feeling better! Hope you have a great weekend… even though it’s almost half over…

      1. I’m going to “like” that you’re home, not that it was so long. Good God… 4 1/2 hours! I would throw people out of my own party before then! Of course, we all know I would never have a party in the first place. LOL! My daughter was at a birthday party that changed location part way through… total time was 5 1/2 hours! But that’s little kids — they never run out of “fun”… ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. Yeah it was grueling… But the food was incredible, at least. Oh and the cake! It was a double layer cappuccino cake with chocolate chips! I think I need insulin ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. I have a feeling that I’m going to love it ๐Ÿ˜Š I love a good sense of humour. I have a small blog, but I’m very fortunate to have some truly amazing followers – a term that I’ve never liked. I much prefer the term ‘friend’ ๐Ÿ˜Š
