One Is the Loneliest Number

One is the loneliest number . . .
— Three Dog Night

You know this, right? One can be lonely. Three Dog Night’s song tells us what we’re already well aware of. Since spring arrived this week, I was thinking how nature shows us this truth. Have you thought about how often flowers grow in clumps?

One flower can be filled with infinite beauty . . .

But it’s an even happier sight when it’s with others in the family.

We can focus on one of these little gems while our eyes take in the surrounding colors.

Here’s 3 of them look perky.

Flowers sometimes grow so close that they bunch up, two together. So sweet.

So how about you? Who is in your flower family? Who are the people who keep you from feeling alone? Who’s in your clump of life this spring?

Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography, where the theme this week is “One Is the Loneliest Number” by Three Dog Night. Flowers are from my patio spring color bowl, which I’m enjoying!

Very happy flowers – and certainly more enjoyable in pairs (or bunches).

Great interpretation of the prompt. Flowers came to mind when I looked through my photos, but I just could not find the right ones. Yours are great!

What a pretty entry for the song. Yes even 1 lone flower can brighten someone day as can one kind word. Those little pansies here are just darling.
