Loves bloom by Arte-de-Junqueiro Loves bloom by Arte-de-Junqueiro
As you will have seen from my earlier (Snow People) and Teresa's :icontigles1: latest shots, we very recently spent another long weekend in Serra da Estrela (the Land of the Stars) which is the highest mountainous area in Portugal.

The small place we stay, in the village of Aldeias, has a little"garden" on the rocky slopes to the side and rear of the building. This beautiful flower was just starting to bud (in the rain showers) as we arrived.... it flowered (bloomed) the morning we left....

For you my love - loves bloom.... :iconchrii:

Thank you so much - I am delighted with this shot - and although the concept and dedication were 100% it did not last much longer....

Yu are very welcome Ayhan... But as you also well know giving from the heart as a loving brother to humanity does have a cost..... To find balance we must "adjust" ourselves so the love in equals the love out...
