Flower Power - Mosaic Monday

Good morning on this beautiful day. I was sick last week and 
didn't get a chance to post anything. So today I would 
love to share with you some photos I took of 
some beautiful roses and Christmas cactus.

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and 
forgot to put a soul into. ~ Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

 Earth laughs in flowers. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin

Christmas Cactus - Jolly Dancer

The Power of the Flower

I love the soft touch of a flower
It's petals so delicate and warm
The fragrance surrounds the senses
Delighting my soul this morn

I love the sight of colorful flowers
Oh, the power it has over me
I want to wallow in its beauty
For there within lies the key

 Just the sight of this creation
Softens even the hardest heart
Bringing tender sensations
With Hope of a fresh new start

I am joining Little Red House for this Mosaic Monday!!


  1. Roses just seem to go with Christmas celebrations - red and white roses. That said, I still have a small bush of yellow roses blooming in my northwest garden.

  2. Beautiful roses. They are so perfect for this time of year! Merry Christmas!

  3. Love your flower photos, Brenda, and the poem is a delight! I agree, and as I say, flowers are kisses from God.

    I love roses...and the cactus flower looks so exotic. Simply the way, I don't really agree with Henry Beecher. Flowers most certainly do have the essence of God. A most soulful creation.

  4. Gorgeous photos and mosaic of the flowers, so beautiful Brenda! and your poem is just as lovely! your granddaughters are adorable!
