“For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it. ”
~ Ivan Panin (1855-1942)
This one is on full bloom… -

Have a good time everyone!
This post is in continuation with my previous posts - A Blooming Tale and (…contd…) The Blooming Tale. I thank all of you for showing your support in this series of posts. I loved your responses!
You can see the previous stages by clicking on the thumbnails below (these are the same flowers!) -
And is there any fun or joy without colors (especially in case of the flowers)? No!
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Have a happy and caring Sunday!
The Sun has not shown its face for days now, and I’ve decided to write this post anyway. It’s in continuation with the post “A Blooming Tale”, which you can see by clicking here.
This one you have already seen. The sunlight is there making it more vibrant. I had to share this one as I liked it very much.
As the sunlight is not there, the flower doesn’t seem joyful, but is still happy. The winds didn’t cooperate so I had to hold it. Winds just kept coming all day long. The absence of sunlight can be easily noticed here: less shadows.
Another day, another angle
I cropped one of the pictures to get a closer view
It’s still time to see it in full blossom. I will just have to wait.
“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”

Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.

Some of you might remember that I had posted a very similar photo before. You are right! Though, it was of orange color. You can check it out here - Bouquet of Small Flowers in One Flower.
Flowers do brighten up a cold and dull winter day, don’t they?

and learned again and again;
there is no end to it.
Hate needs no instruction,
but wants only to be provoked.”

It took me a lot of courage and self-convincing to take this picture. I don’t like insects, esp., of this size. If they are tiny, I can pick them and put them somewhere out of reach. If they are too big, well, they won’t come nearby (there will be less chances, perhaps, I think). But insects of a moderate size having weird anatomy, they are just a bit too creepy for me. Yes nature is wonderful, but not pretty all the time, right? But anyways, I know they won’t harm me, and that’s all which makes me not to harm them, either.
I mean, just look at its antennae! Too big for something this small? But I like its color which looks perfect with the orange and the blue.
Well this is officially my first insect capture, insect of this size. I have earlier captured a little bug though, a very sweet lady bird. You can check the lady bird here.
A close up view -
So it’s not one flower, it’s a whole bunch of flowers in just one!
So what if you did not get a gift of flowers from someone recently, nature has lots of them to gift you, everyday!! Just open your heart to accept them. Like I did when I clicked this one flower yesterday. Now, it’s in my memories (and my blog) forever…
Have a colorful time ahead.
