Flowers on a Winter Day

At Christmas I received an arrangement and today I want to share a few photos from that.


The centre of this Mum is so tightly packed and beautiful. Sunlight lightens the the outer petals.


The same flower from a different angle.It was a very large flower.


Still the same Mum,now looking trough those pristine white petals.


Here is one of the other blooms in this arrangement,with sunlight causing its thin petals to glow.


On a cold,but sunny winter day,this is a scene I just don't get tired of.I see this from my living room window and each time I look outside,I marvel at this beauty.


The above is a morning scene and I am reminded of the following quote.

Thank-you Lord for another amazing day full of so many blessings.

  1. Love how the sunshine of God's love shines through the petals - as it shines through our lives if we allow His LOVE to shine through us! So lovely! That is one saucer sized chrysanthemum!

  3. Lovely flowers but a big part of their beauty is how you have photographed them. And now you've preserved them digitally.

  22. Several days ago I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from a friend. They are such a bright spot in the winter aren't they? I'm thinking this may have to be a habit until spring finally comes!
