The ocean is calling!

This Sunday, I pretended that I was somewhere, where the sea and mountain meet. Where the sea waves crash over the rocks.
I am often bored by simply going to a "normal beach" and sitting there watching the ocean or people gathering around to soak up the sun.  Nope, that's not me or my family.  We like to walk around to see what we can find or explore to see what kind of flore or fauna is there!
So this past Sunday, I let my mind wander to some of the beautiful beaches that I have visited.  Beaches such as those in Scotland.  Brittany in France, and Mendocino in California.
I love the beaches, especially those where the cliffs and the ocean meet.
Where rocks and waves combine, to sing a hymn in unison, a beauty of which only nature has the secret!
Where when the sea recedes for a pause, the opportunity is given to us to collect shells and driftwood.
That's how I love my beach!
That's how I communicate better with her!
These flowers are from my backyard. The purple and yellow are pansies which we call "Pensée" in french. (Pensée means thought) and dandelion. I made a simple bouquet with them and of course, since it is spring, the cherry trees are all in bloom so I couldn't help but to add a little of its beauty to my bouquet creation!
I hope you enjoy it! :)

As always, thank you so much for stopping by.  
Merci beaucoup. :)


  1. So beautiful Solange. I love that you have included dandelions in the bouquet. They grow like crazy here as a weed so they annoy some people. Their flower is marvelous.

    It is so much more fun to explore coastlines than sit on a beach. I never enjoyed sitting out in the sun because I have very pale skin with a history of skin cancer on both sides of the family. There is so much flora and fauna to enjoy and it always rejuvenates the spirit!

  2. Haha I can never just lay on the beach either, I’m always exploring, gathering shells, stones and driftwood ~ we are so much alike! Love spring flowers and miss them so much, thanks for posting these lovely pictures 💗
    Stay inspired! xoxo
