Flower Power to the Flower Children

In the 60s and 70s flowers became a huge part of the culture. Many stars incorporated flowers into work. Whether if they were in their hair, on their clothing, or around them, flowers took center stage. Beautiful, elegant, and lovely. Flowers were essential. They make anyone look good or feel great. Just looking at them and you're inspired.

Flowers: Inspiration For the World

A couple of weekends ago I took my iPod outside to my backyard. It's the new generation with a camera. Ever since I got it I have been taking pictures like crazy. I decide to spend time outside enjoying the sun, the breeze, and the flowers. The pictures aren't the best quality but I think they came out great. I kept thinking how I would be able to create a post around the pictures. Finally I was able to realize that flowers are beautiful, elegant, and lovely in every decade. SO I say enjoy them. They bring inspiration to everyone. Whether they're in your hair, on the ground, on a tree or plant, or anywhere else flowers are amazing. In the 60s and 70s flowers where a big part of the culture. And that has carried on through today. So I hope these pictures put a smile on your face and inspire you!!
