Take time to smell the flowers on Friday

It's time for my new Friday blog post series - where I make time to go out into the garden and photograph the pretty flowers!

Today, this rose caught my eye.  It looks like it has been hand painted.


As small buds, just the tips have a dot of deep pink on them.....

And as they open out, the paintbrush adds a little more color.


Isn't it just stunning!  We bought it just a couple of years ago - and its a wonderful addition to our many roses.


I hope you had a little moment this week to stop and smell the roses...or other flowers.  Remember, lifestyle is important. Not just diet.  Spending time in nature is a wonderful calming and relaxing distraction to everything else going on in our day.

Take time to smell the "flowers on Friday"

Taking time to stop, look at, and smell flowers is something I love to do...and right now, every time I go in the bathroom, the sight of this wonderful rhododendron plant through the window just stops me in my tracks.  It is so beautiful and full of flowers!  It just catches your eye and you have to stop and be amazed!


We have a few bushes, all different colors, but this one below is at its peak right now.




The others are lovely shades of pinks, purples and reds, and across from the rhododendrons are azaleas - also full of blooms this time of year!

What a stunning blaze of color.




So I'm going to start a 'flowers on Friday' blog post, making sure that some time of my week is spent actually wandering around the garden and enjoying all that nature has to offer.


It started last week with the peonies, and this week rhododendrons.....what will be up next week?


I hope you have found the time to  stop and admire nature this week...if not, how about today? It will lift your spirits and provide a little snippet of relaxation.  A wonderful moment in your day.
