Flower Power

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment.

Georgia O’Keefe

The summer of 2014 was the Summer of Flowers.

Owen and Emily were getting married in September and I filled my garden in Greene with flowers that we might be able to use for the wedding.

Emily is incredibly organized. She planned everything so well. She probably didn’t need me to grow flowers, but it was a gift to me — to choose flower plants, and watch them grow and bloom.

These are all flowers grown in my garden in Greene for Day #6 of a nature photography challenge.

  1. I had a boyfriend once with whom our shared delight was to really look at flowers together. A single bloom would be microscopically observed and murmured over. It was deliciously detaching in some way. I kind of miss it. And of course I could do it all by myself. Probably should, actually 🌺

    1. That’s what I said for years and years, William. My mother had a green thumb, but I did not. Then I tried growing flowers.
