Photo Challenge: Beloved

Beloved – perennials represent the generations, and their resilient souls.  Years and decades vary; beauty changes, grows deeper.  It was interesting to see a photo someone took of my mother when she was very old.  I did not see her age, even though I helped with her care, so much as see her spirit and soul grow stronger.  Unconditional love.

Daylilies – July 2017

For me, as perennials bow to rain and fade, they picture grace, acceptance, and resilience.  They are beloved.  I look forward to their new season in 2018.

Tulips from a store, February 2017.  Our winters are long, and we are grateful for the flowers sent to the stores in our area.

Swag

This is a photo by Karl from 2011.  The simple decoration is lovely on the old wood walls.  Our home began as a cottage in the 1940s.

I enjoy working with flower bouquets as they change and fade.
