A Floral Orchestra

What a pity flowers can utter no sound! —A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle… on, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!
~Henry Ward Beecher

  1. Actually, for me, silence would be better than whispering or speaking. That would allow for deep meditation and gratitude for the beauty that the Master Gardener has provided us. For persons who do not have the gift of sight, the sweet aroma would inspire their imaginations and allow them to see what we do not see.

  2. It’s really interesting that here in Belize all the most colorful and beautiful flowers bloom during the peek of the “Dry Season,” when most the landscape is depressingly baked brown and ugly for a couple of months. Also the most gorgeous butterflies flittering everywhere you turn. These pix reminded me a LOT of the blooms that come fullest to life here in those couple of dry, dreadful months. Theres something to be said about God and how God works in that.
