Flowers, for the Soul

We made a few trips to the Botanical Gardens this week, and it's always amazing to me how gorgeous God's creation is. Even in just the flowers alone, the diversity is amazing. Here are a few quotes, and pretty pretty pictures:-)
Flowers are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Enjoying the beauty all around us

An amazing field of wild flowers
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. A. A. Milne

Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants. John W Gardner

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

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly. Richard Fuller

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. Claude Monet

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars. Martin Luther

One marked feature of people, both high and low, is a love for flowers. Robert Fortune

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. Joseph Addison

We found teeny baby toads. Claire and Grey held them for us:-)

Even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these... Matthew 6:29
There are always flowers for those that want to see them. Henri Matisse

We found the perfect spot for our picnic

Flowers are the sweetest thing God ever made and forgot to put a soul into. Henry Ward Beecher
