Do You Stop and Smell The Roses, Or Ever Just Take Time To Notice The Flowers?

        I make flowers, crocheted flowers, all the time, for my Wuglyees shop. But I seldom take time to look at what flowers other people are making!...Thanks to this beautiful Treasury by mon12 I remedied that oversight! :-) And I found out that lots of people are making lots of pretty flowers!!
      I mean, look at this cute Rainbow Flower Crochet Foot Thong by loves2docrafts2.
      That could be kinda fun for summer for those who like "cute", but don't really wanna wear shoes this summer! ^_^
     And how about, for color, this set of 6 Crocheted Fancy Flowers by FineThreads?!
       Who wouldn't just get happier looking at these?! :-) ...Or at this?!
        It's a Yellow Meadow Daisy Brooch Pin by Nothingbutstring!...Just beautiful!
     I loved this set of 4 Summer Sunflower Coasters by HoneyBeeAffairs too!
       You can see, there's all kinds of beautiful, well-made, colorful, and cute flowers out there!!....Oh Yeah! And mine! ^_^ This is the one she had in the Treasury...
      ...It's my Powder Moon Flower Crochet Necklace...So, I shared all of this to say: I can appreciate a good-looking flower!! Maybe I don't look around or lift my head to look at them as often as I should, but I'll try to do better, little flowers, and you flower-makers! :-)
      And for those who like to smell the roses?....
     ...a little Rose in a Vase Fine Art Print by Lori411. :-) ...BACK UP!!! Stop sniffing the screen!! ^_^ It doesn't work...I tried it! ^_^
    Okay, I'm off for the day! Got some last minute April things to do! {Speaking of which, I'll be picking the Giveaway winner tomorrow. Today is your last chance to get entered. See the rules and the item being given away over on the right hand side bar. Just click and read! :-)}
      Lastly, Congratulations to the happy couple who themselves stopped to smell the roses yesterday! :-)

Ode To Flowers

Ode to all loved flowers,
whatever color, shape or form.
You enthrall with sheer delight!
At other times, make my heart warm.

Whether photographed or made,
growing tall out in the yard;
In a vase or porch-side planter,
or just naturally unmarred;

Please know you always make me smile,
and lift my mood when I am down.
The world would be a different place
without a lot of you around! 


  1. How beautiful!! You know, I love flowers and this time of the year, I wander around the yard several times a day to inspect the flowers and the plants in general. Spring is such a magical time when everything changes so quickly... Thank you for this flower post, just perfect for a Saturday morning!! Love, Silke

  2. Thanks Silke! I thought it was a good day for flowers, with the pretty sunshine around here the last couple of days. :-) I know you've been enjoying the sunshine, and pretty flowers for a while now in your area. I've thankful that we're finally catching up! I've even got green grass and flowering trees in the backyard!! :-) Hubby bought some more seeds to plant today too!

  3. Been awhile since I stopped by and am glad I did this morning! Love flowers!

    I especially love the brown-eyed Susan coasters and that blue and yellow Daisy!

    60 degrees predicted today - warmest it's been since last October so hoping it gets there. Rhodies are blooming, but our maples haven't even budded! Hope they made it.

    Looking forward to catching up in your backyard.

  4. Janet, Hi!! Yes, me too with the flowers. :-) I even saw that you have some in the collection on your blog! (Which is very nice, by the way) Let's hope the warmer weather kick starts our flower growing season to a fast pace! :-]

    Awwww, What a sweet poem!!! Love the unique flowers. I would like to have more time to just stop and smell the flowers. Sometimes it feels as though time is going wayyy to fast and it's hard to find the time to do it. But, with all the devistation in Alabama, I don't really have anything to complain about. Jehovah has really blessed us. Have a great day Deb. Peg

  6. Peg, :-) I'm so glad you like it! Talking about my beloved creations of Jehovah makes for easy poetry...It's sometimes easy to write about devastation too, but I just couldn't do it today. There's too much of it going on these days. I thought a diversion for in order...I'm sure a poem will come for the other stuff soon though. That's the plight of a poet. Writing it down makes it easier to bear. Maybe that's why Jehovah gave us the Bible, and reading, and studying to do! :-)

  7. These are SUPER!!!

  8. Kerri, Glad you like 'em! :-) Thanks!

  9. Those flowers are too cute! We just wanted to let you know that we have some super cute new backgrounds at

  11. There's nothing like looking at flowers (or yarn) to make you feel better! What wonderful creations they truly are :)
    The flower treasury is beautiful too. I especially like the sunflower coasters.
