A Treat for the Senses

For my birthday earlier this month my family sent a gorgeous bouquet that filled my office with the heady aroma of lilies. It was intoxicating, that scent and burst of color in the midst of winter. Alas, flowers eventually wither and fade away and you are left with only the memory... and perhaps an image or two...



Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature.
