Sick Valentine

I told myself I will never accept flowers from a man if I wasn’t the first or only girl whom he offered to give those. But, then, I failed.

Why are ROSES meant for perfection?

We’ve seen roses in so many photographs or in any occasion. Why? These flowers are not only for one epoch, but for all epochs! Most of us love the lusciousness of red roses for they symbolize blazing love.

Last February 14, 2013, I was more than surprised and I found myself teary-eyed because of the provocative that I had that day. Believe me, it was Happy Hearts Day but I slept my heart out. No, I am not bitter or something. It’s just that, the day was perfect to take a rest without interventions! At 10AM, I got home already and bought some presents for my family. I spent my lunch date with Mama and Papa. Who says Valentines are merely for lovers, huh?

In the evening, I got my report on Rizal banging me because it was due the following day. One moment, my cousin, Fedilyn, the one I keep on talking in my random posts, gave me this single rose and said, “Happy Valentines, cousin.” with the delicate and humble smile she always have.

Honestly, dear readers, I couldn’t contain my emotions that night! Who would expect a rose from his cousin? Of all people who can give me just a single bud or so, it was my cousin who took me by surprise and made all her efforts just to give me one. She really was a thoughtful and a sweet cousin!

Why are roses so perfect; that they define BEAUTY and LOVE? Happy Valentines Day, readers! I hope I am not too late to greet you, although I already was. =P

Mid-Afternoon Drops

Image
“Somewhere in Binmaley.” Luscious green leaves, russet brown branches plus the delicate yellow flower made the rain worthwhile.
Image
Strikingly beautiful. This photograph is a combination of earthiness and allure, that it focuses on the focal part of the three flowers. I also love how the leaves showed its restful harmony in nature.
Image
One of my purposes in taking this angle is to splash an eye-view of the pouring rain.
Image
“Dad’s suggestion.” For me to give you a whole view of my subject, he asked me to take this, right after the rain poured.
Image
Here’s my most favorite shot. I don’t want to sound biased but look at its perfection, eh? Comment below if you disagree. (LOL)
Image
“The Flower and the Flower Buds.” When you spell daunting, flowers give us the first look that God created something pleasing to the eyes and to the soul.
Image
“A Discreet Beauty.” The single side view has a deep contour about nature’s universal love.

“The uniqueness of a thing depends on the plurality of the mind.” If I roam around the bush, I sure know there are abundant things out there. But this flower’s beauty is exceptional.

 “If all the raindrops would taste like mint…oh, what a rain that would be!” Last month started raining so hard.I was with my pops back, then, and we were bounded to go home. The rain madly fell in a cloudy afternoon so we had no choice but to stop by at a near beauty parlor shop. Raindrops add refinement to flowers. They complement the drippy leer of these flowers. Aren’t they beautiful?
