Flower therapy . . .



"Flowers seem intended for the solace
of ordinary humanity."

- John Ruskin

Yes, flowers are always really good for therapy and they make great thank you's.

My boy hit a rough patch last week, then so did I. So a trip to the grocery
store was in order and that's where I found these cute little wax flowers. I've 
never seen them at our grocery story before so it was a nice surprise. And there was
enough in that $3.99 bunch to fill at least 3 different containers. I also picked up
some extra ones for my neighbor. She helped tutor my son in pre-cal since
his teacher has been absent for nearly two weeks and there was a test coming
up. She just so happens to be a math teacher and pre-cal is her favorite. And since she
did it for free, I thought she could use some flowers too. So grateful!

Have a good one, 
Love, Kim

P. S.- We have a new theme for the month over at Focusing on Life, and
you will find me over there musing on some word art.

So sorry about this week being tough for you. I so love wax flower especially when it is open like this and it has such a clean smell. So love the top down image.

Rebecca said...

I love the shot from above.

Michelle B said...

Your flowers are so bright and cheery. I love the 'from above' point of view. I do hope your week gets better...

Roxanne said...

Sorry about your week and I hope things get better!
Love the from above pov! I need to look for these flowers--I'm not sure I've seen them in stores, but they are so cheery!

Nicki said...

Hope all is better and back on track now for both you and your son. A very thoughtful gesture for your neighbor and how nice to have someone that can tutor your child in math - probably the single most challenging subject in our household despite my husband having a finance degree.

Love the perspective on both shots, especially like the composition of the second one.

Stephanie said...

You are right, there is something about flowers - they're beauty and sweet scent offers blessed therapy and can put a smile on just about any face.

I am so sorry to hear you and your son hit a rough spot - I hope all is well now.

Thank you, sweet Kim, for sharing at Roses of Inspiration. Hugs to you!

Gentle Joy said...

The flowers are so beautiful.... I really like their delicate loveliness... not overpowering, not too bright or obnoxious... just delicate and comforting. I hope things go better soon... those rough places in life can be so hard. Thank you for sharing this... I just love the looks of those flowers. :)

That was nice that she was able to help your son, and lovely flowers for a thank you.

Roxi Hardegree said...

I love your four little vase shot. Sorry things are going crazy for you. I'm heading over to see your other post. Have a blessed day and I hope a butterfly show up for you.

Barbara Lilian said...

Hope you and your family are all back on top again. Such great photos you've captured of the pretty flowers and I'm sure your neighbor is happy with your thank you gift for helping your son.

Sheila said...

Gorgeous images - love the angle of the shots. So nice of your neighbor to help out your son. Flowers brighten a sad day, and make a wonderful thank you gift too!

cheryl Crotty said...

I had not even heard of wax flowers until this year...these sure are lovely...my favorite color group...Hope your all done with rough patches for awhile...
Have a good week.

EarlK said...

Wonderful. Especially like the long photo with the four flowers on the board . . . and the diagonal lines in the background. Very nice.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Kim, nothing better then pretty blooms when hitting a rough patch or two. These are so sweet and dainty. I am sure your neighbor loved them and what a thoughtful gift to share for the math help.
Thanks for the springtime inspiration too.
Hugs

Carola Bartz said...

These wax flowers are so beautiful, I would have picked them up as well. How lucky that you have such a nice neighbor. Is your son a junior? My daughter does pre-cal as well, and she's a junior.

Marilyn said...

Kim, I absolutely love the different angles of these shots. Completely different looks. Sweet of you to give her flowers. They always brighten one's day.

Brenda said...

Love the looking down perspective on the row of tiny bottles filled with flowers - what a great shot! Pure happiness.

Scrappy quilter said...

Sorry to hear you've had a rough time. The flowers are so pretty though. Hope they brought a smile to your face. They did mine.

Liz said...

Sorry that you have had another rough week. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Those little flowers are gorgeous!

abrianna said...

I really like that second shot-the overhead angle and the pretty flowers are beautiful.

Kelly Kardos said...

Oh that Sam-what a trooper he is. Hope you feel better Kin too. I Love wax flowers and these two shots are just beautiful. (Big puffy heart) xo

Sharon said...

What a cheerful bunch of purple to brighten your week! I love those 4 small vases, and your perspective from above. I hope this week is going better for your son and for you, Kim.

Maggie said...

Your way of looking at things through the lens is intriguing, prodding me to start thinking outside the box too.
Hope you and your son have a better week this week.

Escara said...

Gorgeous presentation! I love your composing!

Buckeroomama said...

Flowers do make for good therapy --a great pick-me-up and even better if we can get great pictures out of them. :)

Hope things are looking brighter this week.

(If your son has not discovered Khan Academy yet, ask him to check it out. Best site for learning math-related topics --from very basic addition to advanced calculus, etc. Just google it.)

Lisa Comperry said...

Seeing your pics of these beautiful flowers picks me up..I do the same thing when I need cheering up...I pray that things look better this week too..Huge hugs.

molly said...

Love the focus on the top shot and the colours
