The Whispers of Flowers

The whispers of flowers is hope.

Though these are trying times, we can find small graces that God has left us if we look for them.

Stopping to smell the flowers... these lovely lilacs were from my past garden.  Though I can not enjoy them any longer, the thought that someone else can brings a smile to my face.

Our new home has many rose bushes.  I did spy buds growing but nature decided it wasn't quite done with winter yet.  We also have many tulips-to-be waking from their sleep in the front garden.  I bet they wish they had stayed in bed.  No tulip flowers yet ~ just stems and leaves so far.

I have gardening on my mind.  Are you making plans to plant a garden?

*I know the whispers of flowers is hope is not grammatically correct but it sounds nicer than the whispers of flowers are hope. ♥

  1. Gardening is on my mind too, Gina, we have planted a few things and will be planting tomorrow. My roses have a few buds hopefully they will bloom soon.
    You will certainly enjoy your roses, they are one of my favorite flowers.
    Stay safe.
    Blessings,
    Sue

  3. I am not a gardener. My thumb is dark brown! LOL I do, however, appreciate other people's gardening talents and love seeing flowers in bloom outside!

    1. Terri, I seem to do better with vegetables than I do with flowers. Thankfully, my husband is good at both!

  4. I too find hope in the beauty of spring. The flowers and trees in my neck of the woods have been particularly lovely this year.

    1. How lovely! At our NC house, we had an apple blossom tree that must be gorgeous this time of year!

  5. We have had to leave many homes that we wondered if the people after liked how we planted the yard. I bet it is fun to see what will come up this spring. I still plan on laying down some seeds of wild flowers like I did last year and in our veggie garden for sure green peppers and maybe some beans, on our patio I want to do spinach and lettuce again

    1. Connie, your gardens sound perfect! I am hoping the little chipmunks don't eat all my garden.

  6. What a lovely post to read this morning! I am not a gardener, but I want to visit the local nursery and get some pots of geraniums to replace the ones I had in 2018 when we are no longer sheltering in place. Have a restful and peaceful weekend!

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting! I look forward to getting to know you better.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
