valentine greetings

The poinsettia of Christmas past offered up this one leaf 
 i pressed in an old phone book for a few days.
 When i picked up the book, it fluttered out from between the pages,
softly. Itis almost heart shaped to me so it  has the possibility to lead me to valentine's day thoughts
and i am maker after all...the anthurium is definately heart shaped .
she is still blooming  

 and glowing in the sunset 

Ted Mundorff  painted tropical flowers in the 1940's
that i have a  great fondness for.  I have collected and framed some.

they remind me of hearts and so i share them today on St Valentine's Day.
I have already eaten all the conversation heart candies so i won't be sharing those with anyone this year, again.
I also collect vintage postcards and some of them are Valentines. 
Some a sugary sweet and some funny! Some are silly and i remember the ones we gave to our grade school classmates back in the day when we were much younger and only wrote with pencils!

another leaf that blew in  the yard in the shape of  a heart

now for some dark humor...

Well, this one made me laugh!
Be well, see better, sonja
