day 130: the risk it takes to blossom

I've always loved this quote. I knew I had to letter it at some point this month. One of my brother's best friends, Paul (or as I think of him, "paulopanties" -- this is also his Instagram handle), takes some pretty amazing photos of flowers and other green things (and I think he grows most of them as well..). This is one of them! I thought it was PERFECT for this quote. It's an allium about to burst out of the bud!

Thanks, Paul, for letting me use your photo!
