Not sure how this happened, as these were supposed to be two separate groups of bulbs—but doesn’t it look like one of the purple flowers decided to do a bit of neighborly visiting with the white flowers?

White and purple spring flowers, with a purple one next to the white. 

This little scene left me remembering childhood wanderings through meadows full of wildflowers, making up all sorts of fanciful fairy-tale scenarios of what the flowers might be doing. I believe it would do us all good to exercise our imagination like that from time to time, even as adults!

  1. Ahh I love the purple and I like the analogy you made! So true!

  2. Using our imagination more, like we used to as kids, would definitely be good for us 🙂

  3. Pretty flowers, and I can imagine tiny fairies with butterfly wings moving around these flowers, maybe one of these fairies has placed the purple by the white 🙂 I love fairy tales!

  4. I always enjoy nature’s medley for our enjoyment … I think daily doses of imagination stimulate our creativity, and appeal to the importance of balance. Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday! Have a great week!

  5. What a sweet tale of…just getting along. Would that humans could learn from the flowers…and other species sharing the same earth.
