Take A Word - Botanical

How nice to think of things green and growing in the midst of all this snow and COLD (brrrr!).   The background for this piece is a generous freebie from Astrid McLean, the printed materials and flower are from Flickr Collage Images.    Thank you, Sadie, for the beautiful example at Take A Word,  thank you, Marie, for providing the challenge,  and thanks, blog friends, for stopping by for a visit!

    Sometimes says the simplicity of one single flower more then a overcrowding garden !
    It calls for reflection and to remind you of Natures beauty !!
    This is to treasure Bev !!

  11. Simply beautiful, Bev, and a wonderful example of less is more because the exquisite centre-piece needs no embellishments (other than a lovely background from Astrid). Absolutely gorgeous.

  14. Simply gorgeous Bev and it makes me long for Spring so much. Today I noticed my heather had begun to bloom with its purple flowers in an otherwise Winter exhausted garden. The Snowdrops will be next and then it will be Spring.

    Thank you for the promise of the end of Winter.

  23. Beautifully designed, and a fantastic background to set off the lovely shade of the blue flower. I keep telling myself Spring will come - but with all this snow on the ground it's sometimes hard to believe. Thank you for sharing a lovely bit of springtime with us, Bev! xo
