Smiling with Flowers

I won’t lie. It hasn’t been the best week – what with a mixture of blocked drains, crappy weather, marital disharmony and maybe just a teensy bit of PMT-induced grumpiness. So, this morning, seeing the sun shining I thought I would pop out into the garden with the camera and see what was blooming. I am glad I did. Check out this beautiful nigella damasascena (more commonly known by the much more poetic name “Love-in-a-Mist”):

Then there is the rather striking red hot poker flower:

And this wild sweet pea, which put me in mind of Little Bo Peep:

The Earth truly does smile in flowers, and today I was able to smile with Her.
