Think of a world without any flowers

Think of a world without any flowers,
think of a world without any trees,
think of a sky without any sunshine,
think of the air without any breeze.
We thank you, Lord, for flowers and trees and sunshine,
we thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

In a spirit of praise I hope we enjoy this thread of flowers that God created for our pleasure.

Beginning , why not ? , with an English Rose .

It won’t be long before we see Crocuses, among the earliest spring flowers.

I believe the answer to where have all the flowers gone is “Young girls have picked them everyone”.

Thank you. It’s old now, as I’ve had it since Jan 2005 and my brother bought it for mum one birthday or mothers day, a few years before that. It is lovely.

Sometimes you plant one type of flower, and get a nice surprise when another kind grows along side it.

Yes! They always give me hope that spring is on the way! Very long lasting flower. Mine opened a couple of weeks ago because of the unseasonably warm weather. :slightly_smiling_face:

I once planted some tiny pips of Lily of the Valley in my vast flowerbeds. These hardly had any root on them, and I didn’t think they would make it. Not only did they make it, they have spread like wildfire and have become an invasive pest in my garden. I’m constantly having to dig out the rhizomes from places I never wanted the plant to be.

Any ideas on how to eradicate it? Your photo of Lily of the Valley reminded me of how pervasive it has become in my beds.

I would do a stern conversation and 10 minutes off of recess.
