Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

A threshold is a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning — that split-second moment in time, full of anticipation. All the hard work is over; relief is palpable. – Weekly Photo Challenge

If its anything thats abundant in my house, its the presence of flowers, potted or bouquets, whichever depending on the season or whatnot.  I love taking pictures of flowers so when I water flowers and see buds, I wait everyday for them to bloom.  That would mean the chance to capture the moment the beauty of the blossom reveals itself.

Prune Blossoms

Prune blossoms are the anticipation for the harvest of prunes in the coming season. Although we don’t treat our prune tree, we still manage harvest a good amount to make jam or whatnot. 🙂

Spring is right around the corner.  It may be a bit later than usual this year with the abnormal cold that just didn’t want to go away but I look forward to the spring buds as the grass gets green, the trees sprout leaves and the flowers start blossoming.  It’ll be soon. I’m keeping my fingers crossed 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow

We see foreshadowing in almost everyday of our lives, whether we realize it or not. Sometimes we just need to look a little harder.

This week, I wasn’t completely sure what to do until I saw these on Tuesday mornings.  Being extremely busy for the last while has affected my analytical skills and detail-oriented personality to realize the little changes at home.

Look at the beautiful buds of the Clivia flowers and the Plumeria flowers! 🙂

I’m still working on figuring out my new camera so the photos aren’t great…but I love seeing buds because it means the flowers are coming really soon, especially the Clivia because it only blooms every other year (if we’re lucky).

This year, we kept our Plumeria plant indoors and it seems to be having more flowers than usual, so its definitely making our house very pretty!

I can’t wait to see the orange Clivias and the yellow Plumeria in full bloom! 🙂 Our living room will have a wonderful rainbow of colors! Makes me happy just thinking about it 🙂
