In The Glance Of A Flower…

01_clockTime is a brisk wind, for each hour it brings something new… /Paracelsus/

Right here, right now – flowers or memories about them…

03_irisThe flower is the poetry of reproduction.

It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. /J.Giraudoux/

that makes your rose so important. / Saint-ExupΓ©ry/

07_redA flower’s fragrance declares to all the world that it is

fertile, available, and desirable, oozing with nectar. /D.Ackerman/

08_yellowThe flower that follows the sun does so even in cloudy days. /R.Leighton/

    1. Yes, with all the snow piles that are hardly about to disappear any time soon over here I needed something brighter. Even if only memories from the previous spring and summer.
      Snowdrops really are beautiful messengers of spring, John. For me still to look forward to…

    My pick would be the one from Leighton. Lance Armstrong, the fallen hero, said once that love is something we do when no one is looking. Even though the man has been proven corrupt, the idea still holds good. The flower definitely is in love with sun, in this case πŸ™‚ What do you think ?


    1. It might be that Mr.Armstrong had the same opinion about “when no one is looking” also about a few other things – not that I am judging or something. πŸ™‚
      The flower…I believe it is, yes, though pretty much all the flowers are, to be honest. Otherwise they wouldn’t be able to survive, would they?

        Haha πŸ™‚ Well, now we can say so about Mr. Armstrong for sure. But you know… I was heartbroken after he revealed it all on Oprah show 😦 His story, and his book, helped me a lot when I was sick.
        Ahh well… yes all flowers are, biologically speaking πŸ™‚ But for those who are obsessed with something more than the obvious, there is always a thing or two to dig out πŸ˜‰


Plato believed an opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance. Fancy to share yours?
