Did you see me make this photo yesterday in stories? I enjoy sharing my behind the scenes. This photo wasn't planned, it just sort of happened all by itself.
Would you like to hear the story behind the photo?
I was feeling pretty ropey last Friday. Low, ill, exhausted... you know the kind of thing. So, on Saturday I had a long lie in. I heard the postman come while I was still in bed. As it was 10.30am by then, I thought I should probably get up. So I did.
And there on the doorstep was a box of flowers!
The message in the box said 'Enjoy! With love and best wishes :))'
And that was all.
I still don't know who they were from.
But, those flowers brightened my living room with beautiful colour all week long. The roses opened, and three pale blue irises unfurled among them. When I looked at the flowers, I would wonder who they were from. It made me smile.
After a week, some of the roses were wilting, and the irises were dying. So I decided to cut the remaining flower heads, and float them in water. I like doing that because it gives flowers a new lease of life, and it looks soooo pretty.
So, on stories, I cut the flowers and floated them in this bowl; 'a heart, because it was a gift'.
The result was so pretty, I thought I should take a photo.
So I did.
And here it is.
My bowl of roses sits on the floor, looking pretty.
And now I'm sharing the photo with you. I hope you like it.
And I hope you liked the story.
If you are feeling like I did last Friday, then consider this heart as a virtual hug, just for you ♥.
