Ese’s Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Open

This week, Ese has us thinking about images and quotes that say ‘Open’. Well, the photo bit is easy enough, I’ve gone for a couple of very different images here, a beautiful peony from my garden (the peonies were marvellous this year, with no help from me), and the other a door, just open…

But where are the appropriate quotes for these images to illustrate? I’ve done my best, but not sure the images fit the quotes..over to you for comments! Please…

Be fully in the moment,open yourself to the powerful energies dancing around you. – Ernest Hemingway

Peony, wide open

Peony, wide open

When one door closes another door opens but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us. – Alexander Graham Bell
