52 Photos Project~ the macro shot

If you were to accuse me
of being obsessed with flowers,
you would be right.

I am.

It's not something to apologize for.

Because beauty and nature are solace.
Anytime, anywhere.

Last autumn, I needed solace.
I went early to the farmer's market.
I bought fistfuls of dahlias.
I spent hours arranging them
and taking photographs.

My day was better.
My home was happier.
Because of flowers.

I believe in flowers in the home.
Year round.
A single bloom or fistfuls.

If you come with me,
if you come home along with me,
I will teach you the simple wonder
of arranging flowers.
And you will be glad.

  7. Gorgeous photo! Love flowers in the house too. I just posted my final Dollhouse house and the flowers sitting next to it are actually sitting on my dining table right now. I once had a friend visiting and she commented that there were flowers in my house and how she hadn't thought to do that. I thought, how sad not to have flowers in the house.
