“I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.” — Claude Monet
It’s easy to believe that flowers inspired Monet to capture beauty on canvas, creating some of my favorite masterpieces. Add one more amazing gift to the lengthy list of the ways flowers have enhanced our lives.
The flowers seem even more beautiful than usual this year. I don’t know whether it’s something in the weather that has made them more vivid, or whether my soul is so thirsty for the joy they bring to an otherwise difficult season for us. I haven’t had much time for gardening in recent months, but my neighbors have filled the gap, tending glorious blooms that brighten my walks and lift my spirits.
What flowers have you seen today, or this week? I hope you’re finding as many to love as I am!
