Intricate Details

Vintage Camellia

I think the Everything Red series is fading. I haven’t run out of ideas, but I guess that anything we do needs to be done in moderation. That includes red images. Maybe I’ll come back to it when we’re well into spring, when bright colors dot the landscape. For now… I’ve seen enough red. 😉

So… I thought the intricate petals on this flower would be a sweet submission for the Word of the Day Challenge: Details.

It’s actually a hot pink camellia, but it’s faded. Kind of like my Red series. I normally don’t care for camellias. They turn an ugly shade of brown and refuse to leave the bush, and then they litter the soil below. But… if you look at them very, very closely—they’re intricate and beautiful. Like all things in life, we have to look beyond our first inclination to notice beautiful surprises.

That’s about all for now. I’m trying to stay busy and keeping my mind occupied while my snacking habit adjusts this week. So far so good!

Peace & Love

  1. This is a Great message: “I normally don’t care for camellias. They turn an ugly shade of brown and refuse to leave the bush, and then they litter the soil below. But… if you look at them very, very closely—they’re intricate and beautiful. Like all things in life, we have to look beyond our first inclination to notice beautiful surprises.” Amen!
