Moments that Matter

                        
'Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the number of moments that take your breath away.'



I don't think it gets any better than a beautiful rose.

I could look at one, in wonder and savor it's beauty  for a long, long while.

This is one of my favorite photos, that I've taken.

I hope you enjoy it too.
                 
What beauty in nature leaves you breathless?

                    
Author of the quote above is considered unknown, although it is sometimes attributed to Mark Twain. It's a goodie, no matter who wrote it first!

                          
PS: Unfortunately Today's Flowers is temporarily offline today (Sunday April 10th). I was planning to post this there as well. What a wonderful idea for a blog. Sharing the beauty of flowers, each week, with bloggers participating from all over the world.

When I stopped by there today, I did enjoy another wonderful quote:

"flowers represent all our best feelings"

This photo is so realistic, it looks like you could touch this rose. One of my favorites too.

This is a truly beautiful photo, Geraldine. The colour is delicately balanced and I am captivated by the shapes of the drops of water on the petals. I love roses too. There is something so elegant and precious about them.

Hi Teri, I'm so glad you enjoyed it too!

Hi Joseph, I love the way the raindrops look on the petals, to me that's what really brings this photo to life.

Hi SandyC, You are so kind. Thanks for all the support along the way. I am so enjoying my two new blogs too!

Hi Brenda, I love this quote, it's one to keep in mind, isn't it?

Hi Ms. Pie, Oh, I like that a lot! Thanks. I'll try to imagine a scent of roses, how lovely.

Hi Sandy, No roses here yet but its nice to revisit a favorite in the archives isn't it? I can imagine all the gems in your photo archives!

Hi Selma, Elegance, oh that's so true. Maybe that's part of why roses are always so popular. The romance aspect is nice too, isn't it?

Happy Week everyone, Hugs, G
