Be violets in their secret mews
The flowers the wanton Zephyrs choose;
Proud be the rose, with rains and dews
Her head impearling;
Thou liv’st with less ambitious aim,
Yet hast not gone without thy fame;
Thou art indeed by many a claim
The Poet’s darling…..
How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every shining flower! ~Lewis Caroll,
To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable defeat!
~ Beverly Nichols
Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, “Lines Written in Early Spring,”
Give me a garden of beautiful flowers…….
Give me ordorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed
I wish you a day filled with lovely, fragrant blossoms !
Take Joy ~ Melissa
