TEN FLOWERS FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

Ginger for spice -- If you look closely you'll find a little heart.
Nelson Mandela Orchid for Peace
Don't ask me what this is. I'm going to call it a Dreamsicle and hope all your dreamsicles come true.

Edelweiss and Co. So rare it's protected by law. You're rare too.
Thistle for my Scottish mates
And whatever this is. Just love the light here.

A bouquet of sorts, just for you
Be yourself . .  . but be the center of attention.
One can get lost in the crowd.
Here are ten pots to shovel some love into. I'm pretty sure those flowers are fake.

Happy Valentine's Day, pretty reader! I'm overwhelmed by icky icky love for you today. I hope you enjoy all the flowers and my sentimental blatherings. They come straight from the bottom of my camera to the squishy places in your heart.

Want more of my sentimental side? Swing by Fictionaut and read my Valentine's Day Massacre microstory, Sentimental Me.

I must be off,
Christopher

  3. I think this is one of my favorite posts. Happy Early Valentine's Day to one of my favorites!

    P.S. - It means so much to me that 'you GET my work.' You read the Fat Girl illo perfectly. I just hope the author has the same reaction.

  13. Hello, funny Valentines. You're all so sweet and gooey for stopping by. Put on some Frank Sinatra, pop open a bottle of bubbly and climb into the tub with chocolates. They float, so you can scatter them around and nibble as needed.

  16. Seems like you have a flower-filled Valentine's Day. :)) Btw, your "dreamsickle" is actually candle flower. We have a lot of it here in my neck of the woods.

  18. Now if that hadn't blatantly gone out to ALL your pretty readers, I'd be gushing right about now. Alas heading back to chat with my true Valentine ... the cat.

  19. Ah I'm glad to see you includes sunflowers! They're one of the best Valentine flowers in my opinion, much better than the usual red roses everyone always gets.
