The Beauty Of Flowers

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”

-Victor Hugo

“The earth laughs in flowers.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Just living is not enough…One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”

-Hans Christian Andersen

Today my kids and I visited with my dad and at this time of the year his yard is always filled with some really beautiful flowers. Of course I couldn’t resist taking pictures of them so I could share them with you. For me, they give me a sense of well being and overall peace. I was actually thinking of framing a couple of them.

The first one is my favorite. I have always loved the darker orange like colors.

I love the contrast between the two colors.

The contrast here is also striking.

A little psychedelic splash!

The these last two photos remind of some of the animation sequences in Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.”

Can you see the orange glow of the fire inside? Mesmerizing…

 

Flowers at the Elephant Trunk

“When words escape, flowers speak.”

-Bruce W. Currie

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.”

-Luther Burbank

These flowers were also at the Elephant Trunk Flea Market. I believed that they needed a space all of their own instead of being meixed in with everything else that was for sale.

Morning In The Garden

Gardens are a place that can offer a person peace, either by working in them or spending time walking through them. Personally,  I am the type of person who will get more from a garden by walking through it and enjoying what others have done instead of getting down in the dirt. My parents have always been avid gardeners and to walk through their yard is indeed a calming experience. As I made my way through it this morning, I was struck by how brilliant everything was. Enjoy!
