Focusing on Life, Week 10: All Wrapped Up!

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

As a Verb
1. To arrange or fold (something) about as cover or protection.
2. To cover, envelop, or encase, as by folding or coiling something about
3. To enclose, especially in paper, and fasten:wrap a package; wrapped up the peelings.
4. To clasp, fold, or coil about something
5. To move (text that will not fit on a line) automatically to the following line.
6. To envelop and obscure.
7. To surround or involve in a specified quality or atmosphere: The plan was wrapped in secrecy.
8. To engross.
9. To put on warm clothing. Usually used with up.
10. To conclude filming.
As a Noun
1. A garment to be wrapped or folded about a person, especially an outer garment such as a robe, cloak, shawl, or coat.
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.

Must be much warmer where you are my croci are still under a failry large pile of ice that used to live on the driveway. Most years they bloom by Mar 21 ... there's a lot of snow to melt by then! Thanks for helping me believe that spring is coming!

Love your nature photos and wrapped up blooms. So true about coming again. Great post.

Wonderful! I hadn't actually thought about the buds of blooms as the wrapping of the blossoms to come. I'll be looking at all the daffies that are just starting to come on in a very new light.

Just when you think something is "all wrapped up" like a flower that has finished blooming, lo and behold, there's another beauty waiting to unfurl. Sweet!

Karen Williams said...

So true! The daffodils in my yard are just starting to bloom and they have indeed increased in blooms since the year before. They are such wonderful little miracles!

Janet, What a great interpretation. I like the daffodil too - just waiting to burst through to announce Spring's arrival.

A Polymer Penchant said...

Glad you embraced the new tool instead and grabbed these beautiful shots. very true... I always think of the ducks all calm on top, those feet going made underneath. BUT also willing to stick that tail right up in the air, head deep under water, sure to come back up again.

LoriF said...

Love your "wrapped" idea, and especially those nascent of my favorite flowers, as they are so cheerful and such a harbinger of Spring...yayy!!

Becky Pancake said...

Thanx for the flower pics Janet. It fits the theme well and makes me think the spring will really come.
