Plant flowers

Yesterday I brought some seeds... Lots of seeds. Expensive seeds. More than 50 cents a seed. But hopefully my petunias will grow lush and beautiful saving me $$ at the local greenhouse.
I'm starting to get excited for spring.

Today Marley spent the day with me. We did a couple of crafts. We discussed flowers and spring while we made this floral box from a recycled seed catalog and a dollar store box. Messy but fun and good practice with scissors. Shown here resting on a tall jar to keep it from sticking to the paper as it dries . I can't show you the finished box as she had to go when the box was barely dry. We did have some fun doing it. I wish I would remember to take more photos when we are in the process instead of just having fun.

This morning I spent some quiet time in my room. I sat in lotus position at the end of my unmade bed. The sun bounced of the rumpled white bedding and danced around me. I flipped through a well worn copy of a photo book by one of my favorite photographers. I hadnt seen the book for ages and as I flipped through the glossy images I remembered...
I thought how these beautiful images had ignited a passion in me. I recalled how his poetic photos had given me a look into his soul and how by doing so I peered into my own.
And I found myself inspired to return to the love I had found waning. I spent some time this morning looking at the world through the lens of my heart as well as the camera. The photo above is the result.
Lesson learned : Like a long time relationship you need to remember what it is that made you fall in love in the beginning if you are to keep the romance alive.
