30 Days of Gratitude

My daughter is always up for a blog challenge... but since we will be doing a road trip for more than a week to get from Mayne Island to Tucson middle of this month I don't know how consistent the posts will be... but I'll do my best.

I liked the photo challenge list posted on Sher's blog which provides the structure for each day... and right out of the gate want to combine the first two on the list... Colour and Love.

I got five bunches of cut tulips for Shirley's birthday... I just loved the softness and colour of these flowers.  There is a lot of colour and love in fresh bouquet of flowers.

As they sat on the dining room table it was fun to stop at different times and catch a photo as the light changed.

Just like there is a lot of love in a well planned and prepared meal... there is a lot of love in a bunch of flowers.

In this close-up you can see the yellow pollen on the petals.

"Flowers don't worry about how they are going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful." -Jim Carrey

And that is the way love is.  I don't have to put "Love Shirley today" on a list.  I wake up and turn toward her and tell her I'm happy to to have another day to spend together.  What should we do today?


  1. No comments? That was a very nice post, Bear!

    We got lots done today in the gardens… cannot do it without you.
