FLOWERS ALWAYS MAKE PEOPLE BETTER
“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” – Luther Burbank
As summer slips into the beginnings of fall here in Chautauqua, New York, I find myself saying goodbye to the beautiful flowers that have given me and so many others great pleasure these past months.
I will miss their colorful presence over the winter, but I will appreciate them all the more when they appear again next spring.
I never want to forget that we are always surrounded by beauty, and our task is to bring more of it into the world.
How does your garden grow? Silver bells and cockle shells? Appreciate it now while you can. Soon we’ll have autumn leaves to ogle instead.
