Flowers among the stones

Beautiful flowers against stone
Have you ever met someone who seems to be overly positive about everything? Don’t you every wonder if that ability to be so positive all the time is a personality strength or some sort of delusion? I admire them but inwardly I’m also a bit suspicious — those who always seem to be the “flowers.”

I admit wanting to peer behind their “mask.” To find out what makes them work the way they do. To see if the positivity is true or not.

Now, I can be the “flowers” and I often try to be the “flowers” but there’s also stones in my personal “garden” — lots of stones! :-)

These image were taken along the coast a few weeks ago…among a stone breakwater.

    Nice shots Earl. I try to have a lot of blooms in my life, but I keep having to weed the garden!

    When I see the flowers growing among the stones I think of their strength and will to survive.

    Stones or flowers – they each have their own beauty.
    I like these photos. The colors of the flowers and grass compliment the stones very nicely.

    I just love the contrasts between flowers and stone, soft and hard, flexible and rigid, colorful and drab. Very nice series, Earl.

    I like how nature creates these scenes and am in awe of the power in both the flowers and the rocks. I, also have the times when I’m a flower and when I’m struggling between the rocks. I’m enjoying your thoughts over the past few posts. Keep it up!

    @All – Thanks for the comments everyone — I always appreciate them. :-)

    I like the commentary along with these images Earl. However, I for one think rocks are pretty cool on their own. :-)

    I have always liked photos of flowers and stone – they play off of each other on so many different themes.
