Round Robin Photo Challenge-Flower Power

Renee at http://timelesspainting.blogspot.com/, wants us to tap into our imagination and share a little about the power that flowers have had in our lives. How they brighten our worlds, how they fill our homes with aromas which, calm us, inspire our creativity, stir feelings of romance, and in general, make our lives a little more beautiful.
I choose my flowers very carefully. This is a bouquet that fills me with joy and brightens my world. The Dave flower brings romance, an overwhelming fragrance of love and needs my tender loving care. The Nikki flower thinks she is the most beautiful in my bouquet, but she requires much attention or she wilts (pouts) quickly. The Jessy flower just produced a beautiful little bud, but will always be the flower I need to protect from the harsh elements of life. The Manny flower is like the daffodil, strong and true, making my heart sing. The little TK bud brings me hope and joy as I help nurture him to grow. My Michelle flower is just beginning to bloom and become the bright flower God intended. This is my family bouquet that is forever blooming :)

Dave-husband, Nikki-white little dog, Jessy- 21yr old daughter, Manny- 16yr old lab/cocker, TK- my grandson, Michelle-22yr old first born.

An aside on your tagline: If crappy days are gifts, I'm more blessed than Bill Gates!

I wish I knew more about art and what not...

I what I like and what I don't...

I like your pic...

I wish I had something more profound to say like, "What a daring use of color!" or "I love the dichotomy and counterplay of dynamic verses still life.."

but...I think it's a neat pick. it's very surreal.

On the sunrise thing. As a night owl, I can tell you it's quite possible to see the occasional sunrise - on the way to bed! Congrats to #1 daughter!
