What blooms in Papago

Island in Blue posted some gorgeous pictures of flowers from their garden. I got so inspired I took some shots of the blooms around the house. The images aren't that great since TonTon still has my beloved cammy, but here's a bit of garden love to share with all of you this fine Sunday afternoon.

I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck
-Emma Goldman

Where flowers bloom, so does hope.
-Lady Bird Johnson

The earth laughs in flowers
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
- William Carlos Williams
Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll.

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair... ~Susan Polis Shutz
God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars

If friends were flowers, I'd pick you.
How can you say there are too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers.

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns,
or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
Abraham Lincoln

When life hands you lemons, thank him with fina'deni.

They bloom beautifully only because you are happy these days. They are just as beautiful as you.
