“I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.”

I’m a little late with the annual ‘Spring ritual’ of posting a series of flower photos from my garden – partly because here in south Western Australia we had a particularly long, cold winter. The rain that came with it in abundance has given us a truly wonderful Spring, with wildflowers in bloom that hadn’t been seen for years. The photos below are a little sample of the ‘glory of the garden’ this year, accompanied by some favourite quotes about flowers. Enjoy! 🙂

The temple bell stops, but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. ~ Matsuo Basho


A flower never worries about blooming, it just opens up to the light. ~ Anon


Fractal geometry is everywhere, even in the lines drawn in the sand. It’s the cycle of life…you see fractals in plants, in flowers. Within the human lung are branches within branches. ~ Ron Eglash


People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~ Iris Murdoch




What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. ~ Joseph Addison


The earth laughs in flowers. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
