The time I tore apart a flower...

I recently enjoyed a belated birthday lunch with Luke and his family.
They gave me the most jubilant yellow flowers to take home that afternoon! They made me smile so much!
When I arrived home I began arranging the flowers and noticed that one of the flowers was more damaged than the rest. So, I decided to take it outside and rip it apart to make a bit of unique loveliness.

I took off many of the petals until I was left with a striking center and a pile of yellow.

The center.

Taken apart to become new art.

As I thought about what to create with the petals one word came to my
Those flowers had made me smile from the very first moment that I saw them. I then began to create a little cheerful flower message.


After creating that word message I began to capture beauty frames of the center of the flower. Suddenly, another idea came to mind! It would look lovely to nestle the center amidst a pile of petals and capture moments.

And so, I did.

Flower moment...
Flower moment.
When petals come to dance....
When petals come to dance.
A moment amidst the busy...
A moment amidst the busy.

Have you ever joyfully torn apart a flower?



  1. I love the dancing petals! The last picture is my favorite. :) Momma

  2. When petals come to dance. . . I love those words ~ Kelly

    1. Thank you, Kelly.
      I do too. When I looked at that picture those words gracefully came to mind and I decided to give it that caption/title. I'm so glad that I did.
