1535


Whats special about today's photo sharing; well, these flowers are commonly refered to, here in the Caribbean, as "Jump up and kiss me"; honestly, i don't know why; and too, i put the potted plant in this wire stand-up basket, the basket is older than i am, it was made by my maternal grandfather(Lewis Stroude).

another Sunday...
the resurrection story
unfolds eternal
warmth of sunshine some days
a gentle wind strokes my cheek

Flowers have so much to tell us if only we would listen. The basket too surely has tales to tell too.
