My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Thank you to all my readers who sent good wishes for a nice vacation. I do appreciate all of you. I wish I could read all of your blog posts and send my comments. I’m trying to catch up. May take a while.
Today’s image is one that I took while on vacation in Nevada this past week. My sister-in-law, Carryl, got permission from her neighbor for me to photograph this unusual flower. Her yard is lush with beautiful, colorful plants and flowers. I admire people who have a green thumb (and whose husband is a landscaper) :-). I have no idea what this flower is but I thought it to be just lovely.
Kindness (to me) is the color of purple. It’s also the color I use when I meditate, visualizing the violet flame of healing, forgiveness, protection and peace. Namaste’
It’s Friday so it must be photograph a flower day. Well, I don’t do it every Friday but it’s fun to bring home a new bouquet of flowers. They always make me feel good and I love to photograph them. Remember what I said a few posts ago? Blooms don’t blink!
When I spotted these irises I just had to get them. They remind me of when I was a little girl living in Kansas. My grandpa had a green thumb like crazy and created a beautiful bed of irises on the corner of their property. Each year when they bloomed, he would go out there with me and explain what variety each one was. I wish I could remember them all, but the important thing is that I have the memory of him and me … together. I miss you, Grandpa. Thanks for teaching me to love flowers.
He also loved peonies and had them in several colors in front of their house. Those I didn’t like so much because they always seemed to have ants crawling all over them. Yikes! Makes me itch right now thinking about it.
