Photo Heart Connection: July


The past couple of months have been particularly stressful so I was extremely grateful for this image that made me stop momentarily and take a long deep breath.

There was something about its softness and the way the leaves curl that soothed me.  As my husband and I face many changes the suggestion of new life, of grow and a period of transition was not entirely lost on me either.

What image have you found yourself drawn to this past month?

Linking up with Kat for this months Photo Heart Connection.

  2. Hi K,

    That is truly a beautiful image :)

    I am sorry you are going thru so much right now, this economy has been really tough on our family too :(

    I hope your move isn't too stressful and that you are back creating your artwork again really soon :)

    Have a lovely day, cheers, T. :)

  3. What struck me immediately about this image was the multitude of yellow-greens and the delicacy of those tiny leaves - each perfectly formed.

  4. Hello ~

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your image. It seems there's so much stress in life these days so I can relate to what you're saying. What I love about the image is the soft gentleness and curve of the leaves. It seems so very delicate and almost fragile. The gorgeous green tones are a bonus.

    Take care!
