The Sunshine Flower

Who can resist the golden curves

and radiating yellow energy?

Filling the frame

with gorgeousness.

Orange trumpets play to a lemon sky


A single bloom against the light

bringing some sunshine into our homes


in a vase

 for our delight.

Daffodils
whose botanical name is Narcissus
symbolize rebirth and new beginnings.
They are the sign of winter's end
and also symbolize friendship.

    1. I love that vase too, Cathy. It's quite old and I bought it about 20 years ago when on holiday in the French Provence at a flea market!

  13. Sandra, it looks like you and I are following parallel paths enjoying the beauty of floral macros, at the moment :) These are all lovely! My favs are the ones w/ the curves running through them - #1, 3 & 4. That vase is certainly a gem, also!
