God's Gift

This beautiful bouquet is a mixture of "real" flowers and weeds that have sprung up in my front garden.  Like life, I believe that weeds are really in the eye of the beholder.

A florist couldn't have designed a more beautiful bouquet! Nature is an amazing thing, eh? Beautiful!!!

Flowers! They are lovely!

Isn't it neat?! To me, anything with flowers can't really be a weed.

I find weeds have their own beauty - and certainly they have worth, for they are among God's creations.

Dymphna said...

I think weeds are a gift from God because they are so strong and prolific.

The colors are perfect together. I always thought that calling a dandelion a "weed" was hardly fair, they are so beautifully yellow. I couldn't recognize the purple flowers in the picture, but they don't seem like weeds to me. I wonder what would happen if you brought them inside in a bouquet?

Dymphna said...

I'm so glad someone else agrees with me about dandelions!

I think my bouquet would last longer outside, but it is tempting to bring it in.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
