friday finds...

"every flower is a soul blossoming in nature..."
~gerard de nerval~

I love Friday Finds, with Kim Klassen..."it is a place to gather and share...a place to cherish life's simple pleasures"...doesn't that sound like such a inviting place?

My find this week is the blossoming of my paperwhites.  Every Christmas, Santa brings me some bulbs.  He must know just how much i love watching them grow and flower during the long winter months.  The flowers seem to tide me over until the ground outside warms up and my spring bulbs awaken. 

Like a child, i am forever reminding myself to distinguish between my needs and my wants.  Do i really need this...or do i really only want it?
 And i have come to discover that flowers are definitely a need for me!  How about you...what are your needs?  What do you need to help you get through this never ending winter?

  1. I can smell them here mmmm... We don't have snow but pretty soon I think we are going to need a boat so much rain !!!

  2. Perfect! So delicate, I really like the depth of field and the symmetry. I need a hot beverage, tea or coffee, an occasional fire in the fireplace to warm me up and colorful flowers to cheer things up. This morning it is 31 degrees F here in Ohio, almost flip flop weather compared to what we have had lately.

  3. I too love it when I receive gifts of bulbs at Christmas time. It really makes the winter a little less dreary....I definitely need my cup of tea and my knitting....keeps my hands busy when I can't get outside.....

  4. As Winter drags on a flower are becoming a must, just for some color alone.

  5. Your paperwhites are beautiful and I definitely vote for 'needing' flowers. And I wholeheartedly concur that Kim's place is very inviting. Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Those paperwhites are so pretty, NancyJean !
    And flowers are a need for me too :-)
    Nice weekend,

  7. Flowers are a necessity. Lovely paperwhites.

  9. oh my... such a beautiful photo.... and I am with you... flowers fall under the need category...... no question about it......

    i hope you have a beautiful weekend my friend....
    thank you for sharing at FF.

  10. Oh, such delicate, dreamy flowers! Love this! Our winter is much milder here, so my need to be outside is much easier to fulfill! We may get a little snow this next week and I can't wait to get out in it.

  11. I knew when I opened your page and just saw just the peak of the color I was going to love this and I wasn't disappointed. Love your focus. Beautiful Nancy.

  12. We had for some days ago about -20 degrees in Finland. Your photo of lovely flowers warmed my day.

  13. Beautiful image .... flowers are the best for healing.
