flower portraits and posies

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” 

~Gerard De Nerval

My camera is a trusted friend in my creative process. I spend countless hours in my garden putting together little flower posie still lives and photographing them. This is a meditative practice for me. It quiets my mind and allows me to connect with my “inner self”.

Flowers allow me to see how beautiful and diverse the world is. Just like each of us, every flower has it’s own unique beauty and way of being in the world. Some flowers are slow to bloom while others are quick to burst to life and others leave us before we have fully gotten to know them.  Witnessing a flower blooming is like seeing a miracle before my eyes.

“The Earth is what we all have in common.”

~Wendell Berry

 

 

 

“Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

~Hans Christian Andersen
