Grandma's cut flowers

Grandma’s cut flowers

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul.”—Luther Burbank—

Some people may curse the dandelions in their immaculate lawns, but we are all delighted when we see a field of dandelions blooming in the sun. Few among us have never picked a dandelion seed pod and waved it around like a bubble blower, watching the seeds fly out into the air.

We all love our flowers—whether cultivated or what we refer to as weeds. Remember, a weed is merely a plant that is in the wrong place.
Grandma had her zinnias in the house from spring to fall.

Remember the flowers and smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
