friday finds ... the 2.21 edition

"arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning 
can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day ~
like writing a poem or saying a prayer"

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 an inviting place?

Oh my ... friday once again.  It has been a very difficult week.  Sickness in the house (pass the kleenex please),  a major snowfall to shovel while my hubby was out of town in sunny California (okay, he was on business, but still it was warm and he was near a beach),  fog as thick as a marshmallow and now the high winds.
So glad this week has come to an end.

Valentine's Day may be over, but my anemones are still blooming on!  I adore their soft delicate petals and the stamens make my heart just skip a beat with their amazing pop of color.  

I just love to find a flower that makes me smile ... don't you?

  1. What a beautiful post and I love that quote. I must say your photo is beyond beautiful, anemones are at the top of my fav's!

  2. Perfection! I love getting up close to flowers! There is so much I don't notice until I get in close. Love the quote too!

  3. What a gorgeous shot. I immediately thought of how it would be so beautiful framed...

  4. I adore anemones so much also, such wonderful deep colors to choose from. I hope the sickness leaves soon from your house.

  5. This is so incredibly beautiful. Soft, feminine, and just so lovely. Beautiful quote, love Anne Morrow Lindbergh.

    Hope you all get well soon!

  6. This is a stunning capture! I love the pop of blue/purple in the center. So unusual! I'm happy this week is over as well, and hope those in your house are back to being well soon.

  8. Most gorgeous flower ever! Take heart, it's nearly spring.
