Sometimes life with minimal filtering is quite beautiful...


The last time I took a photo of a delicate Anemone was this past fall in my mother's hospital room.

They bloom again.

Much is different and much is familiar.
Fragile looking, but also strong on that long thin stalk.

Crocus
Daffodil
Tulip
Lilac
Iris
Dahlia
and now this early Anemone

Seasonal reminders of time passing,

Beauty.
Transience.
Continuity.

I didn't know we were here yet.

I think your mom must have been amazing - and she lives on in her family and friends - how wonderful is that?

Some flowers always remind us of Loved ones - the way it should be.

Lovely photo.
