Life is too short so Plant flowers? Pardon me? Here is where I’m coming from: I know of way too many cases of terminal illnesses, or extremely serious illnesses, or instances of hardship. It is heartbreaking, and can really get me down.
Are flowers the answer to all of that heartache? No, they aren’t. But they can be a peaceful and beautiful diversion.
I think it is important to do things that make us happy, bring us joy, or simply make us smile.
Why not do something simple that brings such nice returns? You’d be surprised how just seeing flowers can improve your mood. Last year I posted on my facebook page some pictures of flowers which my neighbor grows in her “roadside garden”.
They are so lovely to see. It seems I am always in a hurry and have too much on my mind yet when I see those flowers I just “stop” and enjoy that moment of beauty.
For all of those people who are suffering in any way, I pray for you to find peace. May we all find ways to help those around us who might need that extra bit of kindness.
I think I’ll do my part in planting more flowers, too, to hopefully bring more beauty in the world.
With warm regards,
You’re gift of flowers definitely brightens the world Dana, for those near and far. 😊😊😊.

I couldn’t agree more…plant those flowers and enjoy them…balm for the soul!
Balm for the soul is right, Donna! I find spending time in the garden to be so relaxing. 🙂
