I love flowers, and I also love taking pictures of them wherever I go! I snapped these this morning when I was out in my community in the house-to-house ministry. I meet so many sweet and interesting people when I’m out. When I asked the lady I met today if I could snap some pictures of her hibiscus, she happily obliged me with a friendly wave of her hand, as she said, “You can pick it and take it with you.”
“No, ma’am,” I replied in disbelief. “I’m not going to pick your beautiful flower. I just want some pictures of it.”
Well, since I always have flowers on my mind, she did not have to tell me a third time. Of course, I had to take some pictures of it first. And before leaving, I also got her permission to take some shots of her lovely flower bed.
I did not know there was a huge spider among the flowers in the bed until I happily got back into the car and my sister-in-law told me. Then I slightly freaked out. This is the third time I have gotten myself into trouble with some sort of scary-looking insect while trying to take pictures of flowers, but so far, I haven’t let it stop me. After I recovered from shock, I placed the hibiscus in my hair.
The sisters in my congregation have some really green thumbs, so I just had to snap some more pictures before I went home. And although the lush, thick ground cover doesn’t have any flowers in it, I couldn’t leave it out.
All in all, I had a great day and hope you did, too. As always, this is from my heart to yours!
