Purple Sunday

“Because the birdsong might be pretty,
But it's not for you they sing,
And if you think my winter is too cold,
You don't deserve my spring.” 
Erin Hanson

I love walking out of my apartment and seeing all the nice yards that the neighbors have. There's one house right across the street with these lovely purple flowers growing by the side of the road so this morning I went out  and started picking. I usually am no fan of giving girls flowers especially those that cost you P300 to P600 for a bunch...unless the girl loves to take photos of flowers then by all means...and besides, it's the wild ones that grow through the cracks on the street or the side of the road that look so much more beautiful to me. But seeing a few photos of flowers styled perfectly and shot by a photographer that I follow on IG inspired me to go out and take a second look at these beauties. Must be the cheapskate in me thinking all those years, but today I didn't have any regrets taking photos of the three blooms I picked. It took me so long until I began to appreciate flowers, their dainty prettiness, the persistence to grow anywhere and everywhere,, how they can add light and color to any room. Flowers are truly amazing things. 

Happy Sunday everyone!
