A Weekend of Petals
I wore this rose in my hair today, a bit of whimsy in celebration of more relaxed times this weekend. I hope to buy some flowers to spruce up the winter doldrums pervading my mind - perhaps some wee African violets for my window sill and some pink tulips on my desk! Flowers are particularly reverent for me during the winter, a time when they are scarce and their fragile construct seems so impressively resilient. Winter florals are beacons leading us to warmer times - my favorite season - spring!
