“A country where flowers are priced so as to make them a luxury
has yet to learn the first principles of civilization”
~ Chinese Proverb

“See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence ....
we need silence to be able to touch souls.”
~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“I like flowers, I also like children,
but I do not chop their heads and keep them in bowls of water around the house.”  
~ George Bernard Shaw
I salvaged the pale pink ranunculus from last week's store-bought bouquet. The pretty lavender babies are growing like weeds down by the road. They grow straight up, single spikes, with the lovely tiny flowers on them. Does anyone know what they are?
