In The Moment!

In The Moment
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today."~Dale Carnegie~
Roses sitting in a bucket of water waiting to be placed into a floral arrangement. Loved that they draped over the side looking ever so beautiful, begging to be photographed.
I am by no means a florist but love to arrange flowers, their color, texture and smell, sing sweet whispers to my senses enhancing my creative spirit.
These are precious moments uninterrupted by anything other than the immediate task at hand. Truly living in the moment, taking time to smell the roses, so to speak. 
Have a wonderful day, take a peek at your window box maybe it could use some water!
