LP: Bulaklak [flowers]

Stop and smell the roses---ang lagi kong sinasabi sa aking mga kaibigan na walang hilig magbakasyon, laging trabaho ang nasa isip at kung pa'no pa lumaki ang kita. Kahit sobrang abala tayo sa buhay, paminsan-minsan, kailangan natin namnamin ang mga maliliit na bagay na nagpapangiti sa atin.

Stop and smell the roses is my usual advice to friends who are too busy to take a vacation, who work all the time and are driven to get rich. Even when we are too busy with our lives, we need to slow down sometime and appreciate the small things that give us much pleasure.

Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul.

Flowers are love's truest language.

Beautiful pictures and great words of wisdom. I sometimes have to remind myself to stop and smell the flowers.

Thank you for the reminder!

Tunay yan. Para saan ba ang paghihirap sa trabaho kundi para din maging masaya at stress-free ang buhay, hindi ba? Pansinin ang ganda ng buhay at bango ng bulaklak!

Ang gaganda ng mga bulaklak, mapa fresh or kahit pictures lang, nakakagaan ng feeling. :)

Amen, to that! Stop and smell the roses. Kaya kami ni Zee, kada linggo, pagod na nga!

This is a nice post, to remind us that all work and no play,.....

Bulaklak, ang bango ng bulaklak!

That's the first thing I thought of when I saw these flowers!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You have some beautiful flowers and scenery too. I have an angel trumpet plant right now that looks more like a stick...I will be lucky to get a bloom before the frost comes again!

I love those trumpets (2nd image). We have the white ones, they start as yellowish then turn white and they smell wonderful at nighttime. We found out that they come in different colors so we bought three more from the catalog and they just arrived. Hubs will plant them soon, he has to do it. I have brown thumb :(
