Digital Photograph - Queen Anne's Lace

Queen Anne's Lace

Bursting. Yes, this flower is bursting
with flowers. Just a few hours before
it burst forth with blooms.  Each head
is bursting with flowers.  Just the sight
of it makes me swoon.

It has been a rough week here in the
United States. Two set of sisters killed
by one of their husbands or boyfriends.
One sister pregnant, several of the
sisters mothers. Two cousins first
thought drowned now thought to be
abducted. Questions about one
of the father's and his associates.
Then, a fun night out at the movies
turns into a nightmare. 12 dead,
58 wounded, a nation in shock and

Which brings me back to flowers. Flowers
for funerals, flowers for hospital
rooms, flowers to say "I love you", 
"I am thinking of you", "I hurt
for you", "I am sorry","Thank You", 
"Congratulations". Flowers to cheer
us up, to give us hope, to remind us
that there will be beauty again.

I was so shocked when I hurt about the shooting in Aurora. Actually, I couldn't hold back my tears when I saw the grieving survivors... That is so very unfair, so cruel -- turning a fun event like a movie premiere in a nightmare.

You know what? I also took a photo of Queen Anne's Lace recently (on my birthday). Actually, I have already edited it for posting on my blog. Great minds think alike!

I hope your birthday was lovely. A while ago I tried to leave you a comment on your blog, but got yet another error message. Sometimes drives me crazy... Just to let you know that I have thought of you!
