dazzle me wee roses

I’ve never liked large vases, filled to overflowing, with flowers. Large bouquets can overwhelm a space, divide a table…and the flowers can drown out one another.

why Water Lilies are twice as bright

Water Lilies appear to contain fire at their center, they glow. These flowers are so different from other flowers we normally see. It took me awhile to figure out why. I blame it on the sun…and the water the flower floats upon.┬áThe flowers are lit up by the sun, twice. Once from above and then…
