FLOWERS ON MY MIND

HIBISCUS 4I 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.”

“Go ahead and take it,” she kindly pushed.  “It’s just gone die anyway.”FLOWERS (MS NIXON 3)

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.

I removed the hibiscus from my hair when I got home and snapped one last photo of it before it finishes wilting on the counter of my bathroom sink.HIBISCUS 2HIBISCUS 3

All in all, I had a great day and hope you did, too.  As always, this is from my heart to yours!
