It’s hard to imagine a world without flowers. To me flowers are one of the most amazing gifts of creation. They vary in color, shape, design, function and not to mention they are just breathtakingly beautiful. That’s why I try to incorporate fresh blooms in my life at all time if possible.
I remember my junior year in college I had to have fresh flowers in my dorm room.
It was the littlest thing (and a pretty pricey habit on a student budget), but it brought me so much joy knowing that even though I was just a meager college student and that my life at that time wasn’t ideal it was still beautiful and it should be cherished.
Things will get better.
Flowers bloom. They die and then they bloom again. It’s a fascinating metamorphasis and life cycle. Even though we know the fate of a flower it doesn’t dimish the beauty it’s able to radiate in it’s lifetime.
While I was in Washington State, I was able to visit many beautful sights of nature.
No shortage of majestic mountains, waterfalls, trees and wildlife — I definitely took in all the natural beauty that the PNW has to offer. I can’t believe people get to actually live in a picture perfect postcard.
Among the many places I got to visit was this enchanting flower garden in Tacoma– Point Defiance Park.
My new friend + photographer Carley thought it would be the perfect backdrop for my floral ensemble. As I walked amongst the rows of roses, orchids, dahlias, and ranunculus — all you could hear was my repetitive gasping.
I was definitely in my happy place.
