These were taken last winter,
but I thought I would share them
again for a bit of cheer.
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts.
Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
~Gerard de Nerval
Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you.
~Edward Payson Rod
