Thank you, thank you, April showers!
Oh, how we love this blessed gift of Spring, this lavish display of beauty! Never necessary, but always appreciated.
Flowers are the earth’s extravagance.
They are a lagniappe, a little something extra, like a 13th doughnut when you have bought a dozen. We don’t NEED flowers, but maybe that makes them an even more glorious gift. Vibrant blooms of spring can transform the drab and dreary into the grand and gorgeous. Edwin Curran said that “flowers are the music of the ground,” and they are. The earth is singing for joy, and we can see its melodies. Some flowers are a powerful symphony, and others are a gentle lullaby, but every song is lovely and every blossom is a note to be savored.
