Red. At last.
Fuchsia. Orchids and other assorted holiday flowers. Gorgeous!
Green in glossy leaves. Green in remaining wreaths. Green in a quick run through a nursery.
The reds and hot pinks enhance my mood, bring the bounce back to my high-heeled step, and slide me straight into sensational spirits!
Now if only I’d done more shopping online, not to mention heeded my own top 10 gift ideas for under $100 – under $50, for that matter!
I am running on all cylinders and very last minute, and my good intentions (of good writing) aside – there are tasks that must take precedence. ‘Tis the season!
Please regale in red, fete the fuchsia, grin at the green – and drink in the delight of a boutique display I particularly enjoyed this morning. It is quiet in its manner – with just a touch of sparkle.
Accept my hurried apology that I haven’t even a few thoughtful paragraphs to arrange and offer. I will however suggest that you step out into the brightness of the wintery sky if you can. If not, bask in the brilliance of whatever colors please and soothe you.
Take pleasure in the small joys, the unexpected encounters, and the moments of discovery that come your way when you least expect – so often the gems that inform and redirect our lives.
May I extend a thank you to those who allowed me to snap a few images recently, and a very heartfelt Friday thank you – to all who so kindly continue to read and comment, participating in diverse communities that care – and share.
