Sometimes…we need to stop, smell and appreciate the flowers around us.
Flowers teach us that things don’t last forever. Beauty doesn’t last forever. Our favorite aromas don’t last forever. We want so badly sometimes things to last forever. But if we had appreciated them before they were gone…our heartache would be lessened for when they passed.
“The picture of a flower in a botanical book is information; its mission ends with our knowledge. But in pure art it is a personal communication. And therefore until it finds its harmony in the depth of our personality it misses the mark. We can treat”~Rabindranath Tagore
