Sunlight On My Petals


Sunlight on my petals

kissed warm by golden rays

basking in the radiance

of a hot summer day.

I actually snapped this photo in the morning, just as the sun had risen high enough in the sky to start burning away the coolness of dawn.  I loved the way this particular bloom seemed to be trying to reach out from the shaded area up against the house to try and catch the sunlight.

I feel we would all do well to try and do the same… to reach out from the shaded areas in our lives and let the sunlight shine on our petals.  😀

May this week ahead be filled with lots of sunshine and joy for you…

  8. Gorgeous picture and lovely words


  9. Lovely photo and words! Yellow, sunflower-like flowers make me feel better about July. Strangely, July is my least favorite month but I always feel less irritable/edgy/grumpy when gazing upon flowers like this.


    • Thanks Trisha! The color yellow has a way of doing that, doesn’t it?! 😉 I don’t know even what kind of flowers these are, I put them in for my Mom so many years ago, I can’t recall what they were. I think they might be some type of daisy, but they do resemble sunflowers. I’m a bit disappointed about my actual sunflowers this year, only two came up from the seeds I planted and they’re growing really slow, but I’m sure that those two will be lovely. 🙂


  10. Just beautiful, Julie. I have a similar post this morning. About a yellow Rose. Hmmm……like minds do think alike! Love, Amy


  11. Beautiful words and picture – I really agree, Julie, we need to reach our from the shade and dark and look to the light. Lovely my friend xxxx


    • Thanks so much Ruth. I am forever finding life metaphors in the garden. 😉
      Hope you’re doing alright there today, I’m sending sunny wishes your way. xx
