beauty that heals

Here it is. The "arrangement" that I got for myself on Wednesday .....So very lush and beautiful...So very many lovely colors and shapes...So healing....just looking at it makes me feel so much better....Flowers, nothing like them....The above picture has been soft focused around the edges just for 'effect'....Here is the same picture below, without those soft edges.... The only reason I did that soft focus thingy is because my table is filled with shells and small sculptures, etc...(And then there's the rug, too....)and I found it a bit distracting...But I must say, the second picture really pleases me, a whole lot!

Here below, is another view of this wonderful arrangement....
A closer look.....I just love all these flowers and the colors....this designer/florist does such beautiful work....and he delivered the flowers himself because I wanted him to see that dried arrangement that I have posted....I showed him pictures of the arrangement, (Another example of his artistry....) which I took on December 23rd, and then showed him the way it looks today.....He enjoyed seeing both!

One more lovely view, below.....
And here, below, is a closer look at one of the pale green carnations....That is a carnation, isn't it? Oh, I just love all these colors together....it pleases the painter in me, more than I can say....And yet another view of this yummy arrangement....these flowers look good enough to eat, I swear....There are more pictures and more views, of course....But I will only include one more for your pleasure, and mine. And here it is, below.... I am sure I will need to post more pictures of this very uplifting arrangement, but for today....join me in feasting your eyes on all of the above....and FYI: I am feeling so very much better, thank you very much....




More To Come......

Isn't that old Mother Nature just so inspiring....?

Uplifting is a good word :-)

I'm gonna have a go at baking bread today - so I can provide home made bread for Mrs Aginoth's hand churned butter.....

Sleep well darling, and dream of beautiful flowers....

What a fantastically beautiful arrangement. I can see immediately why looking at it makes you feel better!

As ever, your pictures are beautiful. You really do have a talent for capturing nature in pictures.

I am so glad to hear that you are feeling much better :-) As ever, hugs to you and Sweetie from me and Bob.

I love roses!...and lilacs! ..not a very good combination though hahaha..

for whatever reason, they do make you feel better. I wonder why that is? Perhaps its the beautiful aroma they give.

I am SO happy to hear you're feeling better, Naomi.
Those flowers are extraordinary. I swear you have the most gorgeous flowers out there! And then factor in the "artist" that does the spectacular arrangement. It's truly awesome and I'm so impressed that you just ordered them for you, just because. I'm sure that added to perking you up. Glancing at those lush colors at will goes a long way to making one feel better. "I" feel better just viewing the photos of them! So thanks for sharing.

Yes, nature is lovely and inspiring whether in the house or outside! I love fresh flowers in the house though. So uplifting!!
This is indeed a lovely arrangement that you got for yourself! So nice of him to deliver it personally.

Reading your last post, it looks like you have lots of DVD's to look at!!

So glad you are feeling better dear Naomi!! Give Sweetie a kiss for me!!

I'm glad to know that you're feeling better Naomi. I hope that your recovery continues until you feel better than ever.

I was happy to hear that the fire in the LA hills didn't hurt anyone. Given your health, I hope the smoke didn't blow your way. I'm sure that was some nasty stuff.

I glanced at your Emmy post below but want to read it with more focus before commenting. It's looks quite interesting, Naomi. I hope you get a chance to watch a lot of material before you have to vote.

These are beautiful flowers.

I was thinking of you today when I saw teh pictures in our English papers of the fires in the area behind the Hollywood sign in LA.

I hope it stays a long way away!

Thank you for posting the beautiful floral arrangements. I have never seen anything like them and I am amazed at how gorgeous they are. The colors are vibrant! All of the arrangements are very artisic!
Thanks you again for sharing them. I am using one of the previous ones for a screen saver and it is lovely and makes me feel good.

I am so glad you're feeling better, Naomi. Although I was mostly disconnected this week because of my trip, I think you and I had a kinship, because I fell ill while I was in San Francisco.

I was walking to the Golden Gate Bridge when I suddenly felt incredibly green. I guess the travel and stress finally caught up with me. I grabbed what few pictures I could, then headed back, terrified that I'd lose it in the middle of a strange city, far from anyone I knew.

I made it back to my hotel - taking pictures on the bus whenever the nausea subsided enough - and went to bed. I spent the rest of the trip severely compromised, but I was able to attend all the events and participate actively in them.

Still, it's great to be home. Your flowers brought a smile to my face and to my heart. I wish you nothing but good health for now and forever.

What a wonderful feast for the eyes!
I am so glad you indulged and bought these for yourself. I am also so glad to hear you are feeling better.
I hope the glorious colors of the flowers keep filling you with happy feelings.
I bet that florist is thrilled to know how much enjoyment you get from his creativity.

What a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. I think you really got them from a secret lover you don't want to tell us about. Hmmmmmm???

Honestly, I wish I could find a florest that did work that beautifully. It's remarkable.

They are gorgeous flowers, Naomi. I am so glad he got to see the dried arrangement; it must have been gratifying for him!

The new arrangement has so many different kinds of flowers in it (just my style!) I love the orange ranunculus.

Naomi, David Hyde Pierce was not in the show the night I saw it. I don't think he is doing it now. When I get home, I will look at the playbill again and see who was in the cast. None of them was familiar to me, except the woman who plays the chaperone is from NC (Beth Leavel).

Joared has asked me to tell you that she has not been able to leave a comment for you for some time now. It tells her she has the wrong password, or something like that. Is it okay if I give her your email address?

I loved your flower pictures. Like you I just love them...they just make life so much better! It is amazing at how much softening the side of that photo drew you into the floweres themselves....very nice touch.

Naomi, thanks for recommending Lancaster. I really do want to go back. I have read some books about the Amish recently, and they are fascinating to me, plus that area is so beautiful.

The hotel was just amazing, for a residence Inn. The dining room was very nice and so tastefully decorated. It had ceilings about 20 feet up, and a curved staircase. My daughter is an attn'y at Marriott, so she was able to get us a very good rate!

No hotels in the city would give us the employee rate last week, due to the NIT, I guess. The best rate we could get in the city was about $400 per night!

Did you wave your magic wand after all these weeks, or are you one of the lucky few with an email address to let Google/Blogger know there's a problem? ;-)

Whatever -- suffice to say I've enjoyed your posts even if I couldn't let you know. Sorry you were under the weather earlier and how about that bobcat! I'm going to keep my eyes open out here.

Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. I got roses for my anniversary a week and a half ago that were spricot in the middle with red tips. They are now dried and mixed in with my other roses and flowers from previous times. I can't wait for the roses in my yard to start blooming.

I hope you keep getting better quickly, we have all been struck by the virus at our house too. Blech
