A blog about flowers, poetry, life and style.

the sun makes a great alarm clock,

The weeks have traveled on, the way a piece of frost on the bough turns into a berry.  We have made it through another winter - Although, this winter was a soft one. The sky never welcomed Siberian drippings of snow for too long, everything that arrived from the sky turned into slush soon after.  Most Winter's, the backyard is weighted with bottomless snow. This Winter, yellow grooves and blades of grass have peaked through the few flurries.  If I had it my way, every winter would be this warm.

I am very grateful the former week has now left. It was not pleasant. I caught a fever. My eyes were soaked red, my legs were troubled, my lips barely touched the surface of anything but water, and my teeth felt like a bee's bottom each time I ate supper.     From Monday to Saturday, each day was spent blinking with sleepy eyes and trying to remember why I ever moaned while in good health.    Sometimes, I think the purpose of a fever is to call attention to our little victories in life.  We may not always climb the ladder of bankrolls, and coin. We may not always get to know the girl at the market, or the handsome boy with the brimmed hat. We may not always be proud, or happy, but when we rise with the sun, fall to sleep with the moon, and in between our bodies are whole and free from poor health, we are lucky. 

It's easy to forget the simple joy of waking in the morning without wounds, without bruising, and without bee stings. Even I am guilty of forgetting, and falling into disregard.  Some mornings, I am so careless, I forget that I am even breathing.   Somehow, at the touch of a fever, I am reminded of how victorious it is to be alive when we're without ailments.

If I could spend every day wearing my floral crown - I would.  In the morning, when I dress, I am always tempted to place the crown on top of my hair, but then I remind myself how dull and predictable that would become.   My heart is cooing for more flower crowns on the to do list.

For now, I've got a half empty cup of root beer, and a pocket filled with Cadbury mini eggs..!  I know you are green with envy, but the store is only a car ride away. (Unless you live out in the country, and in that case.. let's trade places!)

See y'all on the sunny side~
p.s please send your suggestions of which leaf/petal colors I should use for my next crown creation (^.^)

Kisses !!

  2. Oh I could not agree with you more. Whenever I wear a crown of flowers it feels as if I was made to have flowers on my head. Like a woodland fairy, a child of nature. I wear them practically non stop as a result. Yours is beautiful. And I adore your blog. :)

  6. these vintage floral looks are so whimsical and remind me of spring. How jealous I am that you are entering the warmer months and we here in oz are enjoying any sun we can get after a dissapointing summer and a rainy rainy beginning to autumn. :-(
