"There is nothing more natural, or beautiful, than fresh flowers.  They are juicy, succulent pieces of living art."  ~Lisa Vanderpump

I agree with Lisa.  The Dogwood picture, above, was captured by my sister on Friday evening.
The remaining pictures were captured at flower beds belonging to my daughters.

 God's artistry and design continually amazes me.







Each flower is totally unique and offers it's own beauty and fragrance...











Wouldn't you agree with Lisa, that flowers are "succulent pieces of living art?"






 




...including these pretty little Buttercups wildly growing by the side of a country road.


"Slow down and enjoy life.  It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast-you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."   ~  Eddie Cantor


"God puts each fresh morning, each new chance of life, into our hands as a gift."

I hope you had some beauty in your weekend!

I would agree with Lisa. Your photos are all so pretty. Until I started taking picture of flowers I don't think I fully appreciated the individual beauty of each one. I loved seeing the lily of the valley and forget-me-not photos. I planted both of these and neither came up for me :(. I adore the smell of the lily of the valleys and I think the little forget-me-nots are so sweet. When my 2nd son was born my sister brought me a bouquet of them from her yard.

I have some of those same beautiful flowers in my garden here in the Midwest. Many of them are blooming now but it's been so dang cool and windy that I haven't really wanted to stay out and look at them. But it rained today and we are looking forward to some warmer temps this week. I loved the picture!

beautiful post Judy and it really puts me in the mood for spring. Our weather has been pretty wet so I havent spotted many spring flowers about. We do need the rain though as we have a hosepipe ban already :(
