Time to smell the flowers

I love to go out and smell the flowers, especially these country flowers, they give me a sense of simplicity and that reminds me, I don't even know their names! My day brightener showed this quote today when I flipped the pages: "Every flower that ever bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there!"

Your photos are so very vibrant! The colors shout to us, and I love that. That is a very good quote also.

Lindas flores, Cris! As fotos estão ótimas. Gostei também da quote!

Connie said...

That is the best quote I have heard lately...Love your beautiful flowers. Can't wait for spring to see my lilies.

Take care,
Connie

Beautiful. Here everything is covered in a thick layer of snow:-)

Cris said...

Thanks Kenju! So glad you like them!

Olá Sonia! As flores são do sítio de meus sogros.

Connie, these pictures were taken at my in-laws farm and the flowers there are so abundant at this time of year! As for the quote, you can read more about Barbara, just click on her name at the end of the post.

Britt-Arnhild, oh, I would love to see the snow once again, it has been a while now since our last trip to the US.

Gorgeous flowers, Cris! The second one is my favorite though... I loved the blurred background! ;o)
(BTW, you still haven't answered my comment on the post "A Cozy Place to Stay"...)

Cinara, thanks, good things come in small packages, like this tiny flower you liked... it is soo small and it blooms every morning, it "takes a nap" in the afternoon, then in the morning, around eleven there it is again! I just replied to your comment, check it out!
