Happy Flower Days . . .

 
 


It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau

 ~
I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
 William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Let us dance in the sun,
wearing wild flowers in our hair . . .

Loved reading all those quotes, I must bring out my little book of poems again, xomething to ponder over while resting in the shade.
Such vibrant colours of the Zinnias, would brighten any dull day.

Zinnias are the clowns of the flower world...pretty, fun, bring a smile to one's face. Except I don't like clowns, they tend to frighten me. I do like zinnias though!

Love the poem referring to flowers. When I was a teen. I wore flowers in my hair even after I got married. It was a thing to do in my time.

Your display is beautiful!
