It's the moment you recognize the greatest source of strength in something... oh, so fragile

Happy New Year!

It’s the moment you recognize the greatest source of strength in something... oh, so fragile Floral art design

It is the passion flowing right on through your veins
And it's the feeling that you're oh so glad you came…

Fragile ice baubles, cyclamen, hazel and moss design.jpg

It is the moment you remember you're alive
It is the air you breathe, the element, the fire…

Moss bed for the baubles

It is that flower that you took the time to smell
It is the power that you know you got as well…

Cyclamen flowers, buds and foliage

It is the fear inside that you can overcome
This is the orchestra, the rhythm and the drum
It is the soundtrack of your ever-flowing life…

Glass and moss

It is the wind beneath your feet that makes you fly...
It is the beautiful game that you choose to play
When you step out into the world to start your day…

Curly hazel twigs

You show your face and take it in and scream and pray
You're gonna win it for yourself and us today
It is the gold, the green, the yellow and the grey
The red and sweat and tears, the love you go... Hey!

Cyclamen buds

Como uma forca, como uma forca
Como uma forca que ninguem pode parar
Como uma forca, como uma forca
Como uma fome que ninguem pode matar
… forca, forca, forca, forca, forca...

White Cyclamen flower

Closer to the sky, closer, way up high, mais perto do ceu, mais perto do ceu

A glimmer is the opposite of a trigger... a little uplift. For this design I am lifting up my happiness by starting a tiny mossarium... but enjoying it as a design while it is in...
