A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Spring is coming

Is there a bit of you that is thinking:
There is in me, it will be here before we know it.
Found this list and thought it was fun.
What flowers mean to me, though
is creation, beauty--and
our God who created such a gorgeous pallette of colors.
So have fun with the list
Ignore what you don't like
or even make up your own bouquet of meanings.
Or give a flower, or bunch with a poem, a verse
or whatever, whoever receives them will be blessed.
I sure would be, wouldn't you ?

What an interesting post Deby. I love it that Lily of the Valley is a return to happiness. Those tiny little beauties really to seem like that.
I saw a robin the other day, so I think spring may be right around the corner. Of course, he was here in Texas - but I'm sure he was heading back north to meet spring right on time.
