Gratitude for the gifts of summer

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.  ~John Ruskin

Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts.  ~Dodinsky

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.  ~Gerard de Nerval

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.  ~Claude Monet

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...  ~Susan Polis Shutz

Beautiful flowers all, and the quotes fit just right. Think I'll wear flowers in my hair and dance. But probably not in uniform as the visitors would think me crazy. Which I am. ;)

Thanks Loran!
For sharing those most amazing pictures and quotes. It really made my day, week, month. We are stuck in the never ending rain and all my plans of the most FABULOUS garden this year have been literally washed away...Love your green house!
