Floral Friday | Made Me Smile

Their petals embody the sun and they smile upon me as I walk past their gaze. They stand tall, overlooking the world with positivity running through their stems. Their big leaves grasp hold of the life before them and take it up into the sky.

They are my favourite and it is not hard to see why. They may not be the most delicate or beautiful but they have this energy that fills my body with warmth and joy and makes the corners of my eyes crease. They have saved me from dark places and have made me feel so loved.

There's nothing more to say really. They are my perfect bloom.

***Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie (trishie@underlockandkeyblog. com) for next month's theme or visit her here

  8. You are so cute! Sunflowers are my FAVORITE flowers. Mostly because they're my favorite color but also because they are guaranteed to instantly brighten your day. These photos just look so warm.. Here I am, buried under blankets because it's below freezing outside.. Spring, come sooner?

    1. Yellow is my second favourite colour and isn't it just the best!

      I don't want my summer to end but sadly it has and winter is slowly knocking on my doors. It's odd knowing that while I am starting to add on the layers, you are half way across the world taking them off.

  25. I really like the idea of featuring plants and beautiful flowers in posts. I'm trying to recall a poem that I once read about sunflowers that really struck me; the poem made them sound so beautiful and mysterious, much like how you describe them in your post. If I think of it, I'll be sure to reply later.
