A Moment's Pause

Hibiscus I


Hibiscus II

I can't resist taking pictures of these flowers that were blooming in my small garden before I went to work this morning. It was so beautiful that I just had to take a moment's pause to watch the glory of these blooms and to smell them. It was soul satisfying and a wonderful sight to behold. What a wonderful way to start a beautiful morning !

Life is not intended to be simply a round of work, no matter how interesting and important that work may be. A moment's pause to look at the beautiful flowers in your garden or to watch the glory of a sunrise or a sunset is indeed soul satisfying. I went to work with a smile on my face . 

I could hear Daddy muttering as I get into the car :)  " Must you do things last minute, wasting time in the garden. Don't you know that you are going to be late for work and make me rush thru the heavy traffic to send you in time for work " I pretended not to hear that and just smile.If  he knew that I was snapping away with the cam, he would have snapped off my head...:p ;) ",  hahaha...what a wonderful day !

Have a wonderful day !


  1. A few days ago, like you, I took a moment's pause to take photos of my african violet which is in full bloom. How I wish I have a garden like yours...your flowers are lovely :)

  2. Hi HHB,

    :) wow, african violet are nice flowers but I am good at growing them. Hardy plants are okay with me like roses...easier to grow and athriums and now added a few pots of hibiscus.

    I love gardening and cooking :)))

  3. Thank you. It's cold outside and I haven't seen a beautiful flower for much too long.

  4. Hi HBB,

    Sori for the typing error :)
    Should be " but I am not good at growing them " :))))

  5. Hi Pam,
    Thanks for dropping by :) When spring comes there will be many beautiful flowers for you :)

    Meanwhile, take care and enjoy good food :)
