Honor the soul ~

My garden in the early morning
(my garden)

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.
~Terri Guillemets

"Every flower is a soul blossoming in Nature.
~Gerard De Nerval

Tickled Pink Posy
(Tickled Pink Posy)
“See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...

we need silence to be able to touch souls.”

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Magnolia Posy
(magnolia posy)

And so our mothers and grandmothers have,
more often than not anonymously,
handed on the creative spark,
the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see -
or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.

Alice Walker

What great photos and I can see your garden is full of treasures. A beautiful artistic composition.
I loved your post on your birthday outing and the sewing machines - who could resist! I real covet that old book you found, but I'll think of Mother Theresa and move on!! Or can I? Somehow I have to find a book like that one!! I'll say a prayer to Mother Theresa, just maybe...
Love your blog and thank you for sharing.
