One-liner Wednesday: First Water Lily Flower

This morning when I went out to feed my three goldfish, this is what I saw. Out of the dark depths, a beautiful flower had risen during the night to greet the day.


Every day, nature has more miracles to show us and often to astound us.

Wishing you all a wonder-filled Wednesday.

Floral Friday Fotos: Beauty arises from the mud

This morning an exquisite pink water lily appeared in my mom-in-law’s garden pond. How amazing it is that a flower of such great beauty is able to emerge unsullied from the murky, muddy depths.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend. On Saturday we fly back to our home in Florida, after a wonderful few weeks of visiting family and friends in South Africa and England.
