5 minute friday ~ VIVID

On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write. For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.

For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Today’s word ~ VIVID


I love flowers for many different reasons:

  • for their fragrance ~ roses, carnations, sweet peas, lily of the valley
  • for their uniqueness ~ passion flower, orchids, heliconia, protea
  • for their beauty ~ lizianthus, hydrangea, tulips
  • for the times they remind me of ~ yellow roses, bird of paradise

But especially for their VIVIDness ~ sunflowers,  stargazer lilies, anthiriums, zinnas

I’m so glad God didn’t create the world in just black and white – I’m so thankful for the VIVID colors around us.

  1. Fresh flowers are hands down some of my favorite things on this green Earth.

    Ironically, fake flowers/plants are some of my least favorite things. Go figure.

    I too thought of bursting colors when I thought of the word “vivid” and flowers are an incredible interpretation of this expression of color!

  2. ahhh yes! Love just coming across a field of wild poppies and those vivid contrasts of colours – sun burnt yellow, lush green field, bright blood red poppy and azure blue sky. I can see it now! Thanks for reminding me of the wonderful vivid colours of our world.

thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts...
