The presence or absence of flowers says a lot about the soul of a community. What doorstep doesn’t appreciate a pot of bright-red and happy geraniums?! Cascading explosions of color come to mind when I think of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, and Cuenca Ecuador makes me think of perpetual spring-time flowers. Usually when I try to figure out why a particular town instantly repels me, I note there is a lack of color in general, but a lack of flowers in particular.
Thoreau said that no one is so poor that he need sit on a pumpkin, and the same goes for displaying a splash of colorful flowers. One needs no budget for tending a few pots of flowers!
A crown of flowers helped transform Barbara’s early-morning barrel roll into a late-morning of smiles and laughter! How lacking our world would be without flowers!
The town of Jama might not smile with brightly-painted homes, but splashes of color spring from lovingly-tended gardens.
Flowers soften dark corners, brighten gloomy rooms and bring springtime indoors during the cold winter months. Essential to my best mental health, flowers enhance the quality of my day!
I’m blessed to live where there are perpetual flowers year round. How boring life would be without flowers! A big “Thanks” goes to Where’s My Backpack for giving me this opportunity to bask in the flowers that color my world!
