Wow, here I am welcoming the slow but certain ending of winter – and you have been through both surgery and a hurricane! Glad Miss Passionflower lives to bloom again and Miss Amaryllis is gearing up for her turn.ReplyDelete
I've been sending wanton kisses towards autumn and winter. I can't believe how hot it has been. All right, I can believe it but I don't have to like it, lol! Do tell your winter to whisper cooling whispers our way.Delete
P.S. Your lippy post (I will always remember it like that) is still making me smile.Delete
Smiling at your description of the storm's unrequited kisses!ReplyDelete
Smiles are good!Delete
:) :) :)Delete
Beautiful! I have realized that Nature at the end of the day teaches us so much, if we pay attention!💝 Love the amaryllis. I hope it blooms soon. And that too, magnificently!!😍ReplyDelete
I agree. It's all in the paying attention bit.Delete
I love this. The second picture really struck home. I have a succulent in my kitchen window that has been knocked down or blown off more times than I can count. And it is still going strong.ReplyDelete
You know, your succulent must be related to my passiflora. That plant has survived so much. She's quite the fighter.Delete
I love the way you experiment with your poetry presentation Magaly.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Robin!Delete
Oh, you're on Instagram now, I see! Or am I just horribly behind the times?ReplyDelete
I've been there for a while. According to a dear friend, "Instagram is guilty for you not blogging like you use to. And it's not fair." She refuses to get an Instagram account, hence the links... I hope she finds it useful.Delete
Nature isn't a shy one, that's for sure. I think if we say we love nature we need to recognize she is a mistress of many moods. And while some are more, ahem, intense than others, we can't say we really love a thing while denying parts of them exist.ReplyDelete
Indeed, partial loving doesn't work.Delete
I just want to say I really like the way you have provided links to the stories that go with the pictures. Since I have already seen/read these I wont comment again on the subject(s) but...I did want to comment about the layout. Nice job.....ReplyDelete
I wonder if you have met the new blogger format yet. I got hit with it this week. It isnt as much creative fun as before.
A blogger friend who isn't on Instagram suggested I shared the links. She wanted to participate, but has completely boycotted Facebook. Providing the links seems to be a good idea.Delete
The new Blogger platform isn't the best thing they've done. It's more than user unfriendly. I hate that if one doesn't pay close attention to the damn thing, all can go wrong. I, for instance, hate that they removed the "Schedule" button, and that one can barely tell when a post has been updated. I've no idea what they were thinking. Sigh.
Interesting phot haikuReplyDelete
Glad you found them interesting, Gillena.Delete
Enjoy your day.
Lovely set of photos.All kicks and kisses. Love that line. Especially, liked the thought in your insta post on how old and lined and scarred is always beautifulReplyDelete
Thank you, Namratha. I believe that all the way to my bones. There is beauty in all things, we just have to look... and see.Delete
there's beauty in all the phases of nature.ReplyDelete
wow! so true and hits the spot. if all could observe them all, all would be greatly impressed and inspired.
thanks for this Magaly. so wise.
Let's hope for open eyes... and hearts.Delete
Beautifully rendered, and wonderously accompanied with elegant photos. I salute you, haijin! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, Frank.Delete
I kept thinking 'kicks and kisses and kick asses.' And we just felt a brief earthquake here in the mountains of VA. I especially like the last photo, standing poised and erect.ReplyDelete
Ha! They seem to go well together. I had no idea you guys had an earthquake. Hope no one got hurt. And I, too, liked the angle of the photo. When I took it, I kept thinking, You're looking at me, aren't you?Delete
When Mother nature comes to play , you never know what mood your going to get from her. Stay safe, you and the plants.ReplyDelete
So very true. We are staying safe. I hope you are well, too!Delete
To have fought and to have survived is the beauty. Life will kick us down but as long as we rise and we fight a good fight.ReplyDelete
I completely agree.Delete
So true. There's beauty, for sure, in all growing things and a reassurance of tomorrow as well!ReplyDelete
"a reassurance of tomorrow", I like that.Delete
You bring Truth, Beauty, Sadness and then Hope. May you long continue, Magaly.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Joel. And right back at you!Delete
I am looking forward to a change of seasons. Mother Nature is a tough lady. You've managed to cycle me through several emotions. Bravo talented lady!ReplyDelete
