Flower of the Day: May 3, 2020

“These too are of a burning color—not orange, not gold, but if pure gold were liquid and could raise a cream, that golden cream might be like the color of poppies.” John Steinbeck, quote from his novel East of Eden

Thanks Cee! Have a great rest of the weekend.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Your diligence about catching up in Reader is admirable! I always appreciate you stopping by and saying hello.
      Poppies are gorgeous flowers. The Steinbeck quote seemed perfect to go with it. I wish it was a picture of a poppy field but the COVID-19 is making it impossible to explore and go on flower walks

      1. Thanks Esther – I think tonight I have to go to bed early though – I was up really late trying to catch up in Reader last night and I published three posts in three days which made me get behind – the Wordless Wednesday post is just short, but yes, I got caught up in Reader last night – 5 hours of sleep is not enough as I’ll nod off during the day. 🙂


      2. Wishing you restful sleep this weekend and catch up from the week! I think I can do 5 hours a night of sleep, but my body tells me otherwise. It’s like there’s only air between my ears and the ringing. lol.

      3. Funny, I had just said that in the other post – I really need to get to bed earlier tonight – before blogging, I was often in bed by 9:30 and up very early to get in more steps. Now I stay up later, and don’t want to get up at 5:00 or 5:30 (forget about the really early time from the past) but I do it anyway (though sometimes do the snooze alarm first), but then I’m scrambling out the door. I was responding to comments every morning before I left – that’s okay in Winter when it takes longer to get light outside as the sun rises later, but now I can be out much earlier.


      4. Sleep is a tricky thing!! I have a wild imagination so my dreams are wacky. I wake up tired…not good for a busy mom when kids are hungry the moment they wake up.
        When I first started blogging, I didn’t realize how much time I needed to invest. Your blog and the reader response you give are so good. I get to learn a lot about things and about you as a person through your comments. I think that’s what makes you special Linda! But sleep you have to!! xoxoxo

      5. Thank you Esther – yes, I had no idea how much time blogging takes. Now my head is inflated from your nice comments. The first four years I had just two people following and commenting and was an organized person in the house and outside. Not anymore, I often feel like I’m flying by the seat of my pants, scrambling around and even when I’m not here online at the blog, I’m thinking of photos I’ve taken and what I am going to write about. 🙂


      6. You’re welcome! Your comment is so funny, but I think encouragement makes a world of difference. And u do that for me.
        I do remember you mentioning that earlier…2 followers over 4 years. But your blog is doing great now with hundreds of followers!! I hope you enjoy the process.
