fortitude



Love this picture. It represents many things to me. Hope and perseverance are two of them. This pretty little poppy was growing on the shores of Lake Louise in Alberta. A glacier fed and very cold beautiful turquoise lake.

This made me smile. As soon as the picture popped up I said, oh Iceland poppies! They are one of my favorite flowers.

Oh, my! Beautiful!
I love poppies. The contrast between the papery petals and the rocks in the background is wonderful.

Good Morning!
I LOVE this photo.
It would make such a beautiful art quilt! Do you do any textile art?
Have a most beautiful day!

Beautiful! I love poppies and the only kind we ever see here are prickly poppies, which are white and wild.

Gorgeous! A splash of color amongst the gray rocks. Nature's poetry.

Love this and the picture in your most recent post. I spent a couple of weeks driving in Alberta a few years back. I was there alone in the depths of winter and went to Lake Louise to look at the ice statues. So beautiful! My favourite place was Emerald Lake as when I went I was the only person (or so it seemed) walking in thick untouched snow. Thank you for taking me back to some wonderful memories!

This is so beautiful! Such a great pop of color in an otherwise bland existence! I'd love to blow that up and have it wallpapered as a mural onto a wall in my house! I think it would be a great statement!

Thanks for sharing!
