Breaking the Fall-144/365

I have got myself into a downward spiral of not publishing my photos. They might not seem 'good enough' or it might be that I don't want to show one more floral image, or I might be too tired (most frequent) or it might be too late. Whatever the reason, I knew I had to break the cycle and just upload and share. This peony, one of my favourite flowers, was resting on the path, so splendid in its unfurling pinkness, so sweet in its wonderful perfume, it too easily might have been trodden underfoot. It's just as lovely as those standing proud above it. So (for my friend Joyce) here it is. 😀

  1. That's good if you post because you love to do it and not because you think people expect. The same with the content! If you love to post 7 days a week the same flower you love, then do it if it makes you happy and do not waive to do because you think people don't get happy with!
    I love peonys and since for some unknown reason they have become increasingly puny in my garden and don't bloom for many years, I am glad you posted it!!

    +Shelly Gunderson  – it's nice to know I'm not alone, and even better to know that others overcome it so well. I hope that the scent you almost got made you feel good. 🙂

  3. Nice! Keep 'em coming…everyone is each inspired in different ways from different photo's. That means you get to inspire different people in many different ways…what a wonderful gift you have. Thanks.

  4. I understand and empathize Ellie.. I feel pretty much exactly the same…
    So glad that you have shared with us, and granted immortality to this delicate and otherwise short-lived beauty.
