Sketchbook Tuesday :: blossom

The flowers and wild flowers have been especially beautiful in our Southern mountains this year. So here is yet another watercolor sketch of flowers that were gathered from our yard. (And yes, I realize it is dated 28 August. I didn't notice that I had written the wrong date until I posted it here. It's corrected now with August crossed out and replaced with July. At least I had the day right. I think...)

And the day came 
when the risk to remain tight in a bud 
was more painful 
than the risk it took to blossom.
