“Nobody sees a flower – really- it is so small it takes time – We haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”     Georgia O’Keefe

Flowers in a Vase
Flowers in a Jar

Another Georgia O’Keefe quote I like is, “When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, its your world for the moment.  I want to give that world to someone else.”

Look close inside the flower
Look Closer

Each flower has its own personality, its own textures…. I would never truly discover their secrets unless I spent some time really getting to know them.
