This post (and the amazing cloud that I saw a couple of weeks ago) is dedicated to all those who conscientiously object to the crass commercialisation of this saint’s day, didn’t receive flowers or chocolates today (but would have liked to), or were too concerned about the unethical and unsustainable practices of some of the people growing the flowers or cocoa beans to buy any.
I love the fact that I had a smartphone with me to take the photo and that the internet allows me to share it with the world. The dog I was walking at the time just did not seem to appreciate it at all!
(See this article by Janise Elle if you are not sure about the ethical practices bit).
Happy Valentine’s Day to you me dear! I love your photo and it has brightened up my day. xxx
I am so pleased to hear that! I saw a wedge tailed eagle in almost the same spot a few days later but I was too slow with the video. Fortunately clouds don’t fly away.
Oh….I actually got flowers this year, but now I feel depressed when I look at them. Amazing heart cloud tho! xx Lu
Oops – that was not my intention! Not all flowers are grown with slave labour of course. I saw some inspiring stories on landline last weekend about people growing roses in Australia: Smell the roses http://www.abc.net.au/landline/content/2013/s3940777.htm?site=sydney So we still have to support the good businesses.
I am impressed that you actually got real flowers – not just a photo of them!!!
