My weekly challenge (the third): 01-16-2009> Winterflower(s).

This is my third page in the album 2009.
The Christmas-rose is my favorite winterflower and when I discovered the tiny plant blooming my heart opened up and I felt so happy and so grateful to have this in my yard!
It reminded me of the Poém my dad wrote to me in my little poèzie-album when I was a little girl. That poém touched my heart and I still remember it without reading the album. It is in my head for ever.
It is in Dutch and it´s handwritten.
It goes like this;

BLOEMEN, MIJN KIND,
BEHOREN TOT HET LEVEN.
DE NATUUR IS ZO MILD
JE ALLES TE GEVEN!

HET GA JE GOED
IN EER EN DEUGD,
VOL GOEDE MOED
EN HEEL VEEL VREUGD!

I will try to translate it as best as I can.....

Flowers, my child,
belong to life.
Our nature is so mild
to give it all to us!

I hope you will have a good life.
Be a good person.
Be brave and never give up,
And have a lot of fun!

My father past away quite some time ago, but he was a very sweet, caring and good person!
I am grateful he wrote this down for me......
This beautiful flower reminded me right away of dad´s words in my album.......
Let us all enjoy the little tiny winterflowers in our yards, on our table and in nature and let´s protect nature as much as we can, because every little flower has a right to be here!
And Joan? I am happy to read that you have crocus in Oregon, too!
They are also in The Netherlands, but they will bloom a little later.
The Helleborus comes first!
Thank you all for sharing this with me and I hope you will like it!
Have a wonderful friday and thank you for all your reading and comments,
Jen.
