Flowers for Friday

“Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” -Georgia O'Keeffe
Georgia O'Keeffe, Pink Tulip, 1926

When was the last time you really looked at a flower?  Examined it? Spent a few minutes noticing the velvet petals and the ombre hues and the waxy leaves?  Thank goodness Ms. O'Keeffe reminded us to tend to the tulips and contemplate the calla lilies and revel in the roses.

Tulips on my table. Pitcher from Anthropologie.
Buy yourself some flowers today.  They will bring you simple joy all weekend long.
O'Keeffe, Yellow Tulips, 1925
