Today's Flowers

Please visit TODAY'S FLOWERS for more beautiful flowers from beautiful people. These are all from the farmers market, they have the most beautiful fresh flowers there. I am not a good gardener so I really enjoy seeing them so fresh. <

Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock. ~Henry Ward Beecher, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers


Have a great day. Anne

Hi Anne...you have a beautiful way of expressing the personalities of flowers. I see them in the same way...romantic, happy, sad, strong, fragile, etc. They are a wonderful gift from God. I've never met a flower I didn't love!

Have a wonderful week-end.
God bless,

Hi Anne, like you I am not also really good in growing them so I just envy those who can grow and make flowers bloom abundantly. Those flowers are gorgeous and I thank you for sharing them.

I found a place where I can buy flowers, even roses under five bucks - makes me happy. :)
Love the color of that lily.
Your previous post is making me wish for fall craft shows.

Anne, I just want to tell you how very much I appreciate your sweet comments...they mean so much to me. Sometimes its difficult to find the time or energy, or even to think of something worthwhile to talk about, so when I see you and others leave such encouraging words for me, I know why I do it.

Thank you so much...may God richly bless you!

I think some of them are snapdragons and Kiss-Me-Over-over-the-garden-gate blooms? I love them, Anne!
