"I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful" (Therese of Lisieux)

" I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enamelled with lovely hues ."

Therese of Lisieux

So another Flower Thread to adorn our days with Beauty .

In recent days , as I have been on my daily walk in a wood just above my home , I have met some wild garlic growing in the shade of the trees .

They make for a beautiful picture .

At a time when they would have been very busy garden centres here in England were closed as part of lockdown . Now allowed to reopen it will be interesting to see if people’s gardens in the summer months have changed at all .

In the shade of the trees are now to be found one of the most gentle and lovely of all flowers , the buttercup .

As kids we would hold a buttercup underneath each others chins , and if it showed the yellow of the flower reflected under the chin , which it invariably did , it was a sign you liked butter .

Someone dear to me , an Anglican nun, used to say, "Whenever I see a daisy I want to worship."I remember her when I see one!
My own small patch is flower filled, and the marigolds and roses have been a joy this year.

I’ve been told that red geraniums are often used to decorate churches at Pentecost .

I don’t know why , but I’ve never been keen on geraniums .

The first day of Flaming June , and , if today’s cloudless sky and hot sunshine is anything to go by , Flaming June looks like living up to its name .

We’ve just had the sunniest spring since records began in 1929 .

And it’s all helped lockdown to be bearable and a neighbour’s peonies to flourish .
