Dahlia Love

Hello beautiful people, here are some stunning dahlias to brighten your day!

Ever since my son’s wedding last year I have a love affair of dahlias. His wedding was a 4 day mini music festival complete with beer garden, live music and teepees. The ceremony was in a forest strung with a 20 metre garland of fresh multi-coloured dahlias! Stunning :o)

 Visual beauty feeds my soul, hope it feeds yours too.

Sending you a virtual bouquet today.

Love and baby steps,

Protect The Wildflowers

“You belong among the wildflowers. You belong somewhere you feel free.”

The hills were alive with wildflowers
And I was as wild, even wilder than they
For at least I could run, they just died in the sun
And I refused to just wither in place

Just a wild mountain rose, needing freedom to grow
So I ran fearing not where I’d go
When a flower grows wild, it can always survive
Wildflowers don’t care where they grow

And the flowers I knew in the fields where I grew
Were content to be lost in the crowd
They were common and close, I had no room for growth
I wanted so much to branch out

I uprooted myself from home ground and left
Took my dreams and I took to the road
When a flower grows wild, it can always survive
Wildflowers don’t care where they grow

I grew up fast and wild and I never felt right
In a garden so different from me
I just never belonged, I just longed to be gone
So the garden, one day, set me free

Hitched a ride with the wind and since he was my friend
I just let him decide where we’d go
When a flower grows wild, it can always survive
Wildflowers don’t care where they grow.
