I took this shot on July 8 and after a week the bud opens up:
Our plants sing for us. These days they sing differently as if the notes are arranged on a different scale. My dogs are pretty alarmed and yet, like the plants, the dogs and other critters moving and living along the grounds and walls of our little house called Heaven, it is a sign of changes taking place. And, like people, they all seek the assurance that whatever happen, things will be alright. I have an Alpha dog (Sumo, the father of Sweepy) but when things seem not right I stand as the leader of the pack. And I take lead and assure everybeing that in the midst of changes I will try to make sure that everyone stay safe and loved.
For Maia and her macro plants, Beverly and her pinks, and the TodaysFlower team of Luiz, Laerte, Sandy and most especially for Denise. And I am adding also for Amy and her manipulated color/monochromes. And for all who take control and take lead of plants, animals, memes and other people's lives and stories, you are blessed! And in your hands and heart lies the gentle grip and power to love, assure and heal!
