“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”
~ Irish Blessings
I love this flower, ranunculus, and featured the orange ranunculus on this blog before. I saw this red one shining in the sun one day, and tried as I might, I couldn't capture the luscious red color correctly.
I think the setting on my camera was wrong, and the angle was wrong but I couldn't do anything about it as I was in the store. They don't like it when someone takes pictures on their property. So, snapped and out I went!
“Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock”
— Henry Ward Beecher
“There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; there is nothing you can think that is not the moon.”
— Matsuo Basho
