Yay, May is here again! (How did that happen so quickly?) This is a re-post of one of my very favorite quotes and thoughts – the joy of our Earth and nature expressed through flowers. If April washes away the weariness of winter, the flowers of May herald the return of color, the blooming of our souls. No doubt there are many quotes and tributes to flowers, but Emerson’s words are still a favorite for me. Nature delights in delighting us ~ Here are my words from 2 years ago:
“The Earth laughs in flowers.” Wildflowers in a field, what a wonderful symbol of the joy of nature and the Earth! When I read Emerson’s words, I cannot help but smile inside. They lift my heart, for flowers are a precious gift. Their heady fragrances and gorgeous colors soothe our aching souls.
We need the healing power of nature now more than ever. The Earth is devoted and steadfast with her gifts. In a world that feels increasingly troubled, flowers help us reconnect to our inherent joyful soul center.
If you made it this far, today I am giving away free copies of my ebook Our Beautiful Earth to celebrate what I think is the real beginning of spring – the arrival of May and her flowers. 🙂
