It is better not picked…


All the flowers are starting to bloom here in South Africa.
It is a lovely time to be outside.
Today, with my mind filled with all sorts of things,
I came across this beautiful new rose in my garden…
I like flowers not to be picked and ratherΒ in their natural state.
I thought I’d share this with you today.

  1. I read once ” If you love a flower don’t pick it up, If you pick it up it dies and ceases to be what you love, So if you love a flower let it be, Love is not about possession, Love is about Appreciation.” ~~~OSHO~~~

      • Thank you Michelle, When I was looking at your lovely blog, I saw a cause I was very interested in, BLOGGERS FOR PEACE, I joined, got my button, and did my first post on it, since I found it here, I would like you to be the first person I link up with, but I’m not sure how, can you enlighten me? Thank you, and what a wonderful cause!!!

      • Thank you, Michelle, for my first one, I just submitted a poem, and a few pictures of things that are peaceful things to me, and I am going to enter the monthly Challenges, all of them, and help spread the word, the reason I chose the swans is because they are in a lake right off my house, and I go there to see them whenever I need some peace and tranquility, it is a real quiet time for me, I hope I am doing this right, if not, please steer me in the right direction! : )

      • Michelle, I think I got it now, stay tuned for my next post, I’ll let you know when it is ready, ” World Peace” : ) I love your blog it is so beautiful! : )

  2. Oh wow Michelle! This is one stunning shot and what a gorgeous rose! You’ve captured it beautifully my friend. I love it! I agree with you. They last longer too when not picked and you can enjoy their beauty more. πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing. *big hugs*

  3. if it is the only one i can resist to pick it…but more than one, i have this “flower picking urge problem delux model 1″…lol…(for someone special) πŸ™‚ it gets complex…have a wonderfull day you…

  4. I prefer leaving the flowers in the garden so that passersby can enjoy them. Unfortunately, the deer love to nibble on my roses…they don’t last very long. Oh well…c’est la vie. πŸ™‚

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
