a week of love

February 12, 2024  •  2 Comments

If one starts a week with Sunday, this week has something for everyone to love.  For American football and sports fans (not to mention gamblers), the Superbowl was the biggest event all year.  For those who like a grand party, Mardi Gras and Carnival are in full swing, culminating on Fat Tuesday.  And Wednesday is for lovers - Valentine's Day. What better way to celebrate than with flowers, particularly the beautiful roses pictured here.  Nothing like an aged cowboy boot to highlight them.

These roses have so many petals tightly packed that they almost like flowing water.

My hope is that during these days that frequently feel very unsettled in the world, the week of love does indeed bring a bounty of love, joy, and peace to everyone!   Thanks to Barbara F.

I love the combination of rustic Cowboy boots and beautiful roses. Hope you had a nice Valentine's day.

What a clever juxtaposition of luscious roses and well-worn cowboy boot. I wouldn't have thought of it. Sorry I'm tardy. The people's work has me overwhelmed. Those are particularly beautiful flowers range of soft yellows and pinks. Better I think than red ones. I appreciate the way you experiment with still lifes. Whether in the shaft, on the instep or the toe the boot is a worthy western partner for the rose. My favorite may be the one with the second rose casually placed beyond the heel. The soft focus is a nice touch.

Happy Valentines to you and Fred.
