Every baby needs a lap. ~Henry Robin

May Flower by Emily Dickinson

Pink, small, and punctual,
Aromatic, low,
Covert in April,
Candid in May,

Dear to the moss,
Known by the knoll,
Next to the robin
In every human soul.

Bold little beauty,
Bedecked with thee,
Nature forswears
Antiquity. brooke the flowerLG_I_Heart_Faces[3] Flower celebrations will be abundant at I Heart Faces this week.

Do go and visit.

Be inspired in the most delightful of ways.

A flower joke perhaps?

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other."
He addressed the man, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?"
Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's self-rising, isn't it?"
The rest of the story gets rather ugly, so I'll stop right here.

Do you have a favorite flower?

What a lovely post... and that baby is adorable. I love flowers and have planted a few in my lifetime; my mom was an avid gardener. I love roses still.
How did that story turn nasty? I am just so curious because it started well... self-rising flower of the edible kind eh? Oy vey! :-)

lime said...

doh! i fear for that husband!

my favorite flower? hard to narrow it down to just one. i'm fond of dandelions and wild violets because without them there would be no mommy bouquets in dirty little fists.

gladiolas hold happy memories for me from childhood too.

thanks for stopping by my place a couple days ago. :)
