  1. Lovely flowers YaYa.
    Mom tries to pay attention but alas there is that party going on in her head. Hugs madi your kit kat

  2. All the best for 2018. May it bring you joy and laughter - anything else is a bonus!

  3. Beautiful macro shot warming my heart and cold winter here!

    Happy New Year ^_^

  5. Not sure about this saying. People often think that I only like frilly things like Eurovision and Christmas films and may therefor think I am frilly as well. They often don't see the non-frilly side of me.

  6. I the flowers are beautiful. I think there is truth in the quote.

  7. Is the flower a hibiscus? I like the new header art very much.

    1. Hari OM
      ... it's a hollyhock! (And thank you.) Yxx

  8. Interesting thought (and lovely photo).

  9. That is such a true quote. I find such differences in what I pay attention to compared to so many other people. My dad and I are almost opposites in that regard. I love your flower! Flowers are something that I love paying attention to!

  10. I had a fabulous red hollyhock last summer. I hope it reseeded and saves my another fifteen dollars at the greenhouse.

  11. A quote to think on! Beautiful hollyhock!

  12. I hope things are well with you and yours. THinking of you.
