saturday seeds























Try to say ranunculus three times really fast. My most favorite flower from the "buttercup" family. Now - try to repeat what you love doing three times really fast.
What did you hear?























Do you have an idea that you are looking to plant.
All you need is a seed.
A seed to plant.
An idea to take shape.






















I know many of you out there are living with a seed, not yet planted, but oh so ready to nurture and to watch it grow into something beautiful.






















All it takes is one tiny seed to make an idea into a stunning bouquet. I encourage you to plant that seed, start small and watch it grow. Were you meant to teach,to design, to create, to share your love, your passion with another.
Create your glory, all with a seed. What are you waiting for?

Love Ranunculus-Ranunculus-Ranunculas! The layers and layers of soft petals. Each day I feel blessed that I get to do what I love- putting pen to paper and coming up with something new and different each time-much like planting a seed and waiting to see what emerges.

Your Ranunculus are beautiful, along with your post. I can't wait to see the coming months your garden.
This topic on the "seed" touched home. Sometimes fear... A year ago I realized sometimes the world needs cheerleaders.

Thanks for a beautiful post.
Have a golden weekend!

I love ranunculus! Yours are gorgeous. Thanks also for your motivating message - never too much of that. Hope your weekend is a wonderful one.

Every time I see these flowers, I wish I had had them for my wedding! Thanks for your sweet comments yesterday. It really means a lot to know that other moms have journeyed the same path and to have their support! With young ones the journey can feel very isolating, but I've enjoyed getting to know others through blogging about our family. Have a beautiful weekend!

I love these photos. I'm thinking about seeds for my garden right now and for my mind too. Thanks.

Gazing into those flowers is like looking into infinity! Thank you for this beautiful reminder that it all starts with something so small.

Those Ranunculus are beautiful-outstanding.
You planted a seed in my head to begin re-thinking the direction of the next chapter of my life. It wasn't like I was ignoring it. Let's just say I was putting it on the shelf for awhile.
I really love your blog!

What beautiful flowers! And your post reminds me of the quote --

My mind is a garden.
My thoughts are the seeds.
Whatever I harvest will be flowers or weeds.

I choose flowers!

Gorgeous flowers, do they grow well in the Northeast??

That Girl Designs said...

I can't even say Ranunculus once, let along three times fast! But, I did plant some in my garden this year. Love them.

Nuture your garden, nuture your soul.

My favourite flower. Thank you for the beautiful photos.

jae said...

lovely in every way. was researching quotes for an upcoming post and found this one....

"Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen."

your ranunculus do a beautiful job of saying the same.

I love ranunculus, they are so pretty! I forgot them in my blog post this morning, oops. Thanks for reminding me of such a pretty flower.

Ranunculus (or would it ranunculi?) are so beautiful. I love the layers. I also love your message here. I need to nurture a seed once I get his little toddler off to school:) I am not sure what is calling me but something!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

This is just a beautiful post and I've always loved ranunculus! Thanks for the inspiration, as always!

Liz said...

How did you know - I love these too!

N said...

I've been nuturing my work seeds so much that I've been remiss and am now catching up with my fave bloggers.

Ranuns are my faves. Honestly. Such rich flowers. Do you grow them? Thanks for the punch of spring!

meg duerksen said...

those are my most favorite flowers....i think.
you see i have never gotten to seethem in person before. only photos and fakes. they are so beautiful but just dont' grow in kansas? or maybe i am mistaken. i love their many many layers and shape.
similar to peonies (my favorite flower that i can grow) but with such fun bright colors.

thanks for the reminder of the importance of doing what we love.
trying new things.
planting a seed.
