    Great to take this message to explore in life…as we keep on having various roles & responsibilities …being planted out of choice or no choice…but to take it as bloom…WOW! great Karin..terrifice passion…positivity…love it..very much…Sure

  • Thank you so much Sure, it is an encouraging quote isn’t it, to just bloom where you are planted, to me it says….just do your best, whatever life throws your way, no matter your circumstances, strive to be grateful and appreciative for the good things, … is not easy, but our attitude counts for a lot and helps us to see things in a more optimistic light if we are able to put aside our fear and anxiety and enjoy what is good, make better what is not :)

    Wow this is cute Karin. But it`s your colors that really seduce me with this one… those gorgeous blue and green hues fading up to delicate pastel skin tones and rain clouds while flora thrives and fauna watches on..
    And what beautiful sentiment in your message.
    I think this has got to be my absolute fave!

  • aw, thank you so much Billy, I’m real happy you like the colours as i was fiddling with that a lot, and in the end decided the blue/green hues were the most becoming, so thrilled you liked/enjoyed viewing this…deepest thanks :))

    Thank God, you have the passion and skills to interpret and nuture all things beautiful Karin! We would never get to live vicariously in that wonderful world of yours otherwise. Gorgeous work. X

  • aw big hugs Sal, it’s that good to see you, i wasn’t sure if you were still around as i’ve been off and on lately, and I miss a lot of my old buddies….it’s wonderful that natural world of ours….continuing to thrive despite us, we are blessed to know it in our lives, to experience something of it everyday, is to leave us with wonderfully wonder-filled minds and hearts! :) xox
