bountiful spirit
filled with light

    Congratulations, and a perfect metaphor for seeing a child bloom and grow, thorns and all! God gave us flowers, but it is our duty to nurture and appreciate them. Good job!

    • Thank you…from my little garden which I’m sure pales next to yours…but keep a lookout from some amazing roses that I photographed at Dumbarton Oaks while I was in Washington DC last weekend!
