Tree blossoms

Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.” – Hafez

I wish these blooms would stick around longer, but they are rapidly falling to the ground making way for leaves. Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday afternoon! Thank you Cee for hosting this challenge and for all you readers taking time to visit my blog.

Flower of the Day: May 1, 2021

These pictures were taken Thursday morning after a much-needed haircut. The salon scheduled me for an 8 a.m. appointment, which surprised me. Had no idea they opened this early…maybe it’s COVID-19 hours. Nonetheless, it was refreshing to feel the morning sunshine by myself (big deal for a night owl).

Fifteen minutes after I got home, my cell phone rang with our home phone number. Ellis on the line asking, “where are you?” We had talked about this morning appointment for few days but she was not happy. I fibbed that I was almost home as I jumped into the room to surprise her: we were both on phones. I thought she’d laugh but her face was already red from crying. That’s a story for another day: separation anxiety since she was weeks old.

I realized my alone time was over: shifting back to mommy role but with shorter tamed hair.

Thank you Cee for hosting this challenge & keeping us updated on all the challenges!

Thank you readers for stopping by. Hope you all have a good start to May and alllergies are under control.

Flower of the Day: April 26, 2021. Seed parachutes

The wonderful world of dandelions. This bright yellow flower is dreaming of when it’ll become a white fluff ball with a very important job for its species: seed disperser. It’s also called seed parachutes.

P.S. Dandelion fuzz balls remind me of how our lives would be much brighter if we generously shared encouragement like these seed parachutes.

Thank you Cee for hosting this FOTD challenge and thank you readers for visiting my blog post! I hope you all have a fabulous start to a new week and enjoy the longer sunny days.

Flower of the day: April 10, 2021. Pink & white Azalea

“A flower does not use words to announce its arrival to the world; it justs blooms.”– Matshouna Dhliwayo

These flowers remind me of sweet bubble gum and summer afternoons. I haven’t seen these flowers on our common grounds before…must be a new addition or random seed. Whichever its source, they’re lovely.

Thanks Cee for hosting the FOTD challenge to share nature’s beauty with others!

Thank you readers for visiting and wishing you all a pleasant and healthy weekend.
