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.
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.
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?
