Influential

Petals, they have beauty AND brains.

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not...


He loves me
He loves me not
He loves me

Hanging Heart by Jeff Koons

Koons' "Hanging Heart" sold in 2007 at Sotheby's for $23.6 million setting a record for the most expensive artpiece by a living artist ever auctioned.

Did your heart ever receive comfort and counsel from a rose?

Love your title. It had me smiling before I even got very far into this ticklishly good post!

Why does a rose offer so much? Yet it is true, it is such a revered thing, such fleeting beauty. No other flower seems to come close to the passion of a rose flower.

I adore that hanging rose by Mr. Koons - and the price is just perfect, too;-)
Have a lovely weekend. xx

Flowers are always uplifting however my mother's Day tulips have lost their kapow! Maybe I will buy some flowers to make a long week better.

When I didn't get the right answer from plucking daisy petals, I found another one until-"he loved me!" My New Dawn roses are doing their thing right now, right behind the Lady Banks explosion. My Peace Roses are about to take over the show. I work outside almost all of everyday to gaze at them, so they are my happy companions.
Best,
Liz

You bet I do!
Flowers are a huge part of my life- professionally and personally. And if they have a scent, that's even better.

Can't imagine life without them. Even a dandelion is cute.

I love the rose petal picture Kelly. So soft and beautiful!

I know one is not supposed to judge art but I can't believe the heart sold for that much.. Who bought it? What is it made of? I am so intrigued now.. Want to know more.

Roses.. yes I have. Many times. :)

Big hugs
