Flowers Make Life Fabulous and Fantastic

Day 6 of the UBC and ABC challenge. Today’s post is all about flowers for the letter F. Flowers are fabulous and fantastic, and they brighten our lives, our environment, and our season. Flowers are fascinating.

Since I sometimes struggle to keep a flowering plant thriving, which is why I currently have three pots of Aloe Vera, I appreciate the talent, time, and skill of others who plant, cultivate, and share their fantastic floral expertise.

Someone took time and effort to grow this tree in a parking lot, making the cement space a little more friendly.

A closer look at the flowers on the tree.

Flowers are fabulous at hiding the dirt.

Then, of course, there are the flowers that fortunate enough to be appreciated for their beauty without also multi-tasking.

Some people are fortunate enough to be able to grow and paint flowers. This painting by Barbara Shepherd is one I find fascinating.

There is the mix of flowers and fabric. There are people who make flowers using fabric, there is floral printed fabric, and then there are those who sew flower shapes on fabric.

Finally, there are cut flowers purchased from a local floral vender (or the grocery store) and placed in a vase to create a personal bouquet and brighten a space.

look of the vase isn’t important. The flowers create the fabulous feeling.

What about you? Do you grow flowers, or appreciate the work of others?

What is your favorite kind of flower?

Do you have a favorite flower color?

    I am fortunate enough to grow flowers, paint flowers, crochet afghans with a floral theme, and even embroider flowers. Thank you for the beautiful think spring post! Spring is unfolding here in slow motion so these springy images were very much welcome.

    Beautiful pictures!
    I love purple flowers, especially lavender. I don’t have any at home though, because I tend to struggle to keep them alive…
