This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.
Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.
In a world of spring pastel blossoms and the bright red/orange/yellow of many tulips this tiny bright blue flower can be overlook, especially when they are in the shade. The sun hit it just so on our mornign walk to make if catch my eye. I’m not sure what it is.
It seems like every year that we go to Paradise a different type of flower steals the show. In the past I’ve seen very few gentians, but this year they seemed to be almost everywhere. Apparently this is because of the early warm spring that we had.
