I bought this little broken porcelain plate at the flea market some time ago. It was not an act of conquering a treasure, it was more a feeling that this small piece has to be saved and protected. I still keep it. For each time I look at it I ask myself, is it so dear to me because of pretty hand painted flowers , or for the fact that someone glued it together so carefully to overcome destiny. But in fact it reminds me, each time again, that it is worth it. It is worth to plant a flower, it is worth to make a bouquet, it is worth to paint a plate, it is worth to glue broken pieces together. Because you newer know when someone would come by and say: look at these pretty flowers, they are worth it!
P.s.: to see flowers in my paintings, please visit my site 🙂
Portulacea grandiflora is the one I have to plant each year. I even have a big glazed pot reserved just for portulacea .The pot is on a sunny side and portulacea I plant there have to be of different colours. When new flowers bloom it looks like a bouquet is arising from the glazed pot, each day a new bouquet, as different coloured flowers bloom in various combinations. There is only one rule, portulacea are in full bloom only on sunny days, at about ten o’clock in the morning. Just a perfect time to have a Sunday morning coffee!
