Flowers

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” Mother Teresa

Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon photographing flowers. I had a new lens to play with…what else would I do? Today…well..it’s raining. So, I guess I should work on my book.

Until next time… peace.

Flowers…

Even though today is my mother’s birthday, she brought me flowers. The Irises in her flower bed became too heavy with the last night’s heavy dew and light frost; the flowers were on their sides. So, she picked some for me to photograph.

The timing was perfect. I had just purchased a new lens. The flowers gave me a chance to try it out. I am not sure if I like the lens yet or not. I guess, after some practice I might feel differently.

Oh, don’t worry my mother got her birthday present. I got her the necklace; she has been admiring for the last month. I also baked a small chocolate cake for her. Since she knows how much I dislike baking, she really appreciated the cake.

Until next time…peace.
