bold and beautiful ~


"and the day


came


when the risk


to remain


tight in a bud


was greater than the risk


it took to bloom"
Anais Nin

In Florida, 
spring's colors are bold.
And beautiful.
These blooms took my breath away.
The buds were tough.
Protective.
And ablaze with color!

This season calls out to me.
This season says
RISK IT!
Shed the protective skin,
open up
and step out of your comfort zone.

It is time to bloom.



Happy to be joining Kim for
Little Things Thursday
and to be sharing a favorite quote with
Mama Kat's
