Let's all stop and smell the flowers!

 My friend Sharon gifted me a bouquet of spring flowers for my birthday and for a couple of days I have been so busy and no time to  just stop and smell the flowers. Every time I walk by the bouquet I take a deep breath...if I could only stop for a minute and take a photo or two. 
I did I did! it's 4:50 pm and the sun is going down and I stopped what I was doing and captured these beautiful ranunculus. The Light was perfect!. I am not a professional photographer it's a hobby that gives me so much JOY and PEACE. 


I hope you will stop and smell the flowers too!
or take a picture......

Ciao for now
