Focusing on Life, Week 10: All Wrapped Up!

This week our challenge is a phrase with many different meanings.  From Sally, Studio Sublime:

3. To enclose, especially in paper, and fasten:wrap a package; wrapped up the peelings.

2. A blanket.
3. A wrapping or wrapper.
4. A flatbread, such as a tortilla or lavash, rolled around a filling.
5. The completion of filming on a movie.
   Are you all wrapped up in warmth or are you diving into a dessert that is all wrapped up in yummy goodness? You have a prompt that has many different meanings, grab the camera and show us how you are interpreting "all wrapped up"!

I wish I had my wire, because I was itching to be in my studio coiling and wrapping beads and such after reading her prompt.  Instead I grabbed my camera and went in search of something in nature that was all wrapped up.

Daffodils still under wrap

One of the beautiful ways of nature is even when a flower is done the plant may flower yet again many times the same year like a perennial or come back multiplied next year with even more flowers like a daffodil.

So you see, something that is seemingly All Wrapped Up and finished
can really be All Wrapped Up 
and ready to bloom again.

Never give Up.
