“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.”
– Luther Burbank
Flowers, Our Constant Friends
Flowers are our constant friends, in good times and the not-so-good times. Just gazing at a blooming flower can infuse us with so much joy and radiance.
I know this is my second post this season on flowers, but I can’t seem to have enough of them, as they nod their heads in full bloom. I love the riot of colours doting our condo and the nearby alleys, this time of the year. It makes the Corona Virus scare less larger than life. Something optimistic to fall back on, you see! 🙂
Everywhere I go, I carry back a flower from that place as a keep sake. I sometimes even carry back the leaves, like I did of the Baobab tree in Maniyara, East Africa.
Do you recognise the flowers in the second picture and in my feature image? Would love to know their name if you do. I spotted them in the very basic, tiny Arusha airport, in Tanzania. I was bowled over by the intoxicating fragrance and the purple, lavender hues.
Do flowers enchant you too? Do they give you more reasons to smile? Any life-lessons you take back from them?
