75. I must have flowers always, and always. ~Claude Monet

Miss Peony donned

petticoats the color of

ivory moonbeams.


While the Lady Pink

Azalea stippled her frills

with touches of red.


Sky blue clematis

opened up with touches of

luscious purpleness.


Alas Lady Rose

was not to be out shined by

none so fair as she.


Yet nothing is more

lovely than a small blossomed

cluster of sunshine.


“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’. . .Your heavenly Father knows that you need them.”  ~Matthew 6:28-32
