vantage point.





the other day while grocery shopping
these dozen roses found their way
to my cart to my car to my home
to grace the vase displaying
eucalyptus leaves from Christmas.
the softest blush tone with a hint
of green on the tips. they spoke
to me and sometimes it's just
the right thing to do ...
buy flowers for yourself.

this morning offered the perfect
lighting for a quick snap
and here you go.

      has a ways to go yet until he feels even semi-human.
      we have a very busy weekend. necessarily so.

  8. I'm glad you bought yourself some flowers, Sherry. I've been seeing the blush roses lately in nature, and they're so pretty. I bet they brighten up your home with this dreary weather we're having in California. Although, I'm loving this winter season. : )

    1. on one of our rose bushes are 3 sweet and frilly
      english sachets blooms. the lightest of pink.
      so pretty. i actually love the overcast sky.
      it's a personal favorite. i tend to 'come alive'
      when it's overcast or foggy. weird, huh?

      the practice. ♥
