It's Friday and I'm feeling rather generous today. I have flowers for all my wonderful friends.
Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"
And finally, this last one made me laugh.
do people give each other flowers? To celebrate various important
occasions, they're killing living creatures? Why restrict it to
plants? "Sweetheart, let's make up. Have this deceased squirrel." ~The Washington Post
