Yesterday I posted on Instagram the first flower of the new year blooming in my Vista, California garden. https://www.instagram.com/p/CJg6x0oD2cO/?igshid=hk1opvenipnt

Today, I am moving this daily floral exercise from Instagram to my blog and will share it from here to all my social media.

Doing this helps me accomplish two major things this year… 1. To blog first every day before any other postings and 2. To find a blooming plant in my garden every day to share.

Photographing just one flower is all it takes to get me outside in the morning and open my mind to how much there is to see in any season, on any given day. I have two acres and I live in a gardener’s paradise where roses bloom in December. I want to record this floral wealth daily with intention and become even more grateful than I already am. To not take for granted my great weather, my wonderful property or my flowering plants.
