The image posted above is titled heavenly because it appears that the flower petals float off into infinity, or heaven. It is dreamy, like pink clouds. The quote links the meaning of the peony, happy marriage, with the title of the image. Love and heaven united.
“May the love hidden deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams. May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.” – Unknown
The above four words are associated with the Star of Bethlehem flower in the Victorian Language of Flowers. When I saw the quote above I felt that it somehow linked the four words; atonement and reconciliation of yesterdays and hope for pure love in the days to come.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the women in my life who have served as a mother figure, who have inspired me, who have encouraged me, who have supported me, and who have helped me become the woman I am today. I appreciate your sacrifices of love, of time and of self, for me, as well as, for all people in your lives.
“Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – Franklin P. Jones

The Tulip series is getting a little long so I thought I would try something different tonight and post multiple images. Yes, all are in black and white, this too is a change. Although these images were lovely in color, they moved me in black and white. I would love to hear your thoughts. Do you like them? Which do you like best?
