The Joy of Flowers

The flowers are starting to look a little shopworn and tired. It doesn't help that the lawn needs mowed or that the cottonwood drops leaves 12 months out of the year. Still, it's a joy to walk out into the garden and see who's blooming, who needs to be staked up and just enjoy God's beautiful flowers. The petunias have outdone themselves this year. My Green Envy zinnias are so pretty but the color is hard to capture with the camera. The stargazer lilies are gone now but what a show while they were here. Right now the phlox are blooming and the sunflowers, the phlox just smells like summer to me.
Flowers are so healing and peaceful. Maybe that's why we send flowers to people in the hospital, because they heal the soul with their cheerful message of love.
Sending you a big bouquet of flowers today to lift up your heart.
God bless you, Diane
