Silent Saturday ~ Part Fifteen

As I sat working on a painting; Dr. John walked in carrying the most beautiful bouquets of flowers.  One for me and one for the neighbors mom (Louis is 96!).  What a wonderful surprise for Mother's Day!  He is so sweet and thoughtful!

We immediately began taking pictures of them especially since Louise's was going to her house soon.   This is our pics.  Enjoy the flowers!!

Perfection is a Rose by Raymond A. Foss

A red, red rose,
posing in the vase on the counter
a reminder of the beauty of summer
of the smell of a full bouquet
the effortless, flawlessness
the perfection of a rose
supple petals, thorns to protect
even color, deep burgundy red
rich saturation of red
soothing red, passionate red
enshrined in the bloom
the bud opening in its glory
look at me!

Have a magical and blessed weekend!
Hugging you

Flowers and greenery and general have a wonderful way to bring peace and joy to the soul, don't they? Maybe it is because every colorful piece to life carries a message from the Great Mother... or maybe because flowers are the Gods' artiness at work...

What a wonderful present. Thanks for sharing my dear ;-)
