The sweetest things


“Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.” Henry Ward Beecher

I couldn’t resist snapping these flowers in my local farmer’s market. They literally were the sweetest things, immediately drawing me to their full-bodied, fall-fresh beauty. Hope you enjoy them, too!

Happy Sunday!


  1. Totally beautiful. I love, love, love visiting you on a Sunday morning. Sunday mornings are so divine. Sunny and warm(ish) here. The fall foliage is out of this world.

    • Hey Tamara! Thanks so much. We’re seeing the beginnings of fall foliage but it’s so bleak outside that it’s hard to really enjoy it yet. It’s supposed to warm up and get sunny from tomorrow, so we’re looking forward to that. Enjoy!

  12. Hi Alison! This is a beautiful photo! So many deep colors, and it looks like perfect weather for a snapshot too. I just love fall, flowers included. All that color really catches my eye and leads me to thank the Creator who made them all.

    Monday Blessings 🙂

    • Monday blessings to you too, Ceil! I think the flowers stood out more because it was such a bleak day, rainy and cloudy. They were a ray of hope in the midst of a string of dull days. Enjoy your week, Ceil!

    • It’s been a long holiday weekend for me, so it’s been going great so far, Kita. You should buy some of those flowers and leave them on your doorstep. They make a great entrance statement!

  16. God’s beautiful creations! Aren’t they just lovely? When we look around, HIS handiwork is evident everywhere. Have a beautiful rest of the week!
