Bloom


Hello sweet people.  I thought I'd join in with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday again.  I always love her challenges.  Today we had to use one of her textures and a word in our photos.  I chose to use her Just Cause texture and, as you can see, the word Bloom.


Mmmm...bloom, such a wonderful word.  It brings to mind something that is growing and flourishing...becoming all that it was meant to be.  I've been hoping and wishing and praying that I would bloom.  Perhaps through this blog of mine.  That was the reason I started it, you know, to find my way back to me.


"As long as we are persistence in the pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow.
We cannot chose the day or time when we will fully bloom.  It happens in its own time."

 ~Denis Waitley

This quote kind of sums up the way I feel. It tells me to keep trying and, that in time, things will happen for me.  Let's hope :)

Best wishes ♥ Tricia

  2. Hi Tricia, I am out of town and on my hubbys lap top and just checking my blog etc and actually on a kind of vacation, but just wanted to pop in before I turn in for the evening and your blog was up front (lol) and I just want to say your blog is such an inspiration to me and all I have to say is you must be a very beautiful person to have such beautiful photos and to write as beautifully as well.

    Blessings

    p.s. your bicycle photo's touch close to my heart. I have some too and cherish them

    and a great font for "bloom".

  25. Tricia,
    Simply magnificent photos. I LOVE your work!!!! Also was very touched by your words. Those seasons of waiting, finding our way can be such challenging {lonely?} times. Makes me wonder why "patience" isn't a four letter word! ha! Can I say that out loud? Xo, Sue

  49. What beauty is found here, on your blog...Always. We should think of ourselves as blooming - from the time we wake up, getting into our day - our hearts-petals opening and blooming. Then, we fold into peace and calm at night, before we go to bed, wrapped in solitude and thinking back on our day. Blooming again the next morning! We all learn as we go, don't we?....Happy Wednesday! xo

  57. Hi Tricia!

    Your pictures never disappoint. I have come to the decision that the peony is my favorite flower:) Ours started to bloom this week. I'm a happy camper!

  59. Like you, I adore peonies. Right now, I have a single deep pink one in a bud vase, and a lush bouquet of the softest pink ones in a pure, white pitcher. Lovely, as are the stunning photos on your site.
