.ode to the flower.

If it were not for these simple and yet so meticulously beautiful posies, I think many of us would find the dreariest of days to be absolutely unbearable.  Here are some quotes that I found quite fitting for such lovely, little beings.

It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.  ~William Carlos Williams

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.  ~John Ruskin  

Life is the flower for which love is the honey.  ~Victor Hugo

The flower is the poetry of reproduction.  It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.  ~Jean Giraudoux

When words escape, flowers speak.  ~Bruce W. Currie

  1. When words escape, flowers true...I am reminded of first love. When my 15 yr old daughter came home and showed me a beakuktiful boquet of mums and daisies she smiled at me. She said her boyfriend left them for her in her locker. When I asked her why she said, no reason but smiled that I am in love smile. You know. Flowers do speak louder than words ever will.



Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
