I don’t have any one quote I live by. I do love flower quotes as I love working and sitting in my different garden areas.

The first six pictures are ones I took of our different garden areas to go along with the quotes.

When I sit in my garden I know my soul is fed just looking at my beautiful flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds and other birds.

This first flower is an unusual type of morning glory. I planted a dozen seeds but only this one came up. Part of the fun of gardening is watching for a particular seed to pop up through the soil.

This is a picture of one of four butterfly bushes in our yard.

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” – Luther Burbank

“Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts.” – Sigmund Freud

One of two sunflower gardens we have. I love how their blossom follows the sun throughout the day. And come morning, they are facing east again.

“Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too.” – William Cowper

“A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.” – Doug Larson
