Flowers for a Sunny Day

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.  ~Basho
To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.  ~Beverly Nichols
'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798

Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.  ~Heinrich Heine, The Hartz Journey
Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there.
~Francis Thompson, "The Poppy," 1891

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.  ~Chinese Proverb
If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.  ~Audra Foveo
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.  ~Walt Whitman

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions - so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.  ~Adabella Radici
Go enjoy the flowers today,
