Outstanding One

Outstanding One


We had the blooming of the flowers. Now, of course we must also have the end. Everything in this world will come to an end. This flower is shot nearby and it seems that it is wethering. However, one must notice that it still have one of its beautiful petal extending proudly outwards. The strongest survivor?

Love the shot and what it says about surviving till the last. You are on dr.johns list of blogs to visit, so hi there. Love your pointing to heaven photo and the lake photo, really nice.

oh what a fitting picture and words right now..an outstanding picture. truly it is. there is beauty in the beginning and in the end of all things. i just witness the end of a beautiful flower myself. this post deserves a poet's thought, the picture another..i wish i had them in me..but all i can do is admire them both and agree.
Dr. John made you his link of the day and if you knew how grateful i am.

Also here, thanks to Dr. John who finds us gems of blogs such as yours. Your series from bloom to end is lovely and worth pondering. I also really enjoyed your "Royalty Ground" - indeed it is!

I like your posts. I read through them as I was trying to comment. I like the series but I do not know the mname of the flower. I came from Dr John.

Visiting from Dr John's

It seems such a shame for in yesterday's shot we had a moment to do the "He loves me. He loves me not" trick. Today, it is as if the flower did it for us with that one strong beautiful petal. Sticking out just to say, "He loves you!"

Stopping by via Dr. John this morning.

a bright yellow flower (oops- I thought it was a dandelion) -what a cheerful sight on such a snowy/rainy/dreary day here!
I understand your interest in photography and enjoy it immensely myself. Dr. John sent me here, too.
