What Will Your Soil Bear?
"Consider what each soil will bear, and what each refuses." ~Virgil
I'm participating in Kim's Texture Tuesday this week - her theme is flower. Sadly, the only decent flower I can take a photo of right now is indoors...yesterday, we had another snow and even though spring has officially begun, it still feels like winter here in Virginia. I've shared a few shots of our snow storm below, but first I had fun with Kim's flower prompt. I took some close-up photos of a bouquet of grocery store flowers recently, and this was a favorite...I used Kim's "Cora" texture at Soft Light/26%, and also put my image through Radlab. I loved the dreamy effect I got, and the image seemed to be begging for a quote. I love the meaning behind this quote, or at least, my own interpretation of it. What "grows" in our life absolutely depends on whether it's compatible with who we are at the core. A mismatch between soil and seed will mean poor growing conditions.
Thank you for stopping by - I'm hoping that soon I will have many beautiful spring blooms to share...winter has overstayed its welcome!
