The Way of Flowers...



After Emily's wedding we put the mums on the porch.. A few days ago our neighbor passed away. She was 94 and a lifetime lover of flowers! Her son stopped by to ask if they may use the mums in the hall at her funeral and I got to thinking,' that's the way of flowers...

They cheer our happiest
and saddest hours
That seems to be
The way of flowers.

  2. Such few words, yet they speak volumes. Yes - God has blessed His creation with gifts...
    Lovely, Janet.
