love thursday: the guest waterlily heart

Like many of you,  I suspect, I’ve loved waterlilies ever since the first time I saw paintings by Claude Monet.

So imagine my delight when this gorgeous photo showed up in my inbox, sent by Marnie of Country Fried Stitches:

Marnie wanted to share this image of love, “the heart-shaped leaf pointing to the waterlily,” with all of you and kindly granted permission for me to use it here.

Which leads me to this:

If any of you have blogs but don’t do Love Thursday *or* don’t have blogs at all but still want to spread the love, please send your heart photos and images of love to me here, and I’ll publish them with your permission.

Thank so much Marnie, and Happy Love Thursday to all!

    Great picture! How about the Phillies?

    Woohoo for the Fightin’ Phils! My grandmother was a huge Phillies fan; she passed away seven years ago today…I know she’s loving this 🙂

  2. bellissima. I’m a fan of Monet as well.

    I *love* Monet. I was very lucky to have lived close to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which has/had a few of his works 🙂
