Wild flower bouquets
“Where the most beautiful wild flowers grow, there man’s spirit is fed and poets grow” – Henry David Thareau
And true to his words, it surely made me write a few lines because there’s something so alluring about wild flowers! They don’t get the limelight that some of the other celebrated flowers get but I am just in awe of them wherever I see grow.
My heart fills with joy at the mere sight of these beautiful flowers
but almost immediately I feel an ache
to see them not get their due credit.
Then I wonder, if it bothers them as much as me?
They look so happy blooming wherever they are!
They don’t seem disheartened at all
In fact, they don’t seem to even care!
Just blooming, smiling and being happy!
They converse with the butterflies that frequent them
They seem to be nodding
and smiling as the gentle breeze sways them
They don’t seem to care
what the human mind thinks as worthy and unworthy
They know in their hearts that they are special
And that they are here for a reason
And that is reason to rejoice, and
That is reason enough to rejoice!
What a profound lesson they teach us every day by just being themselves and spreading joy!
And it does more than just please my eyes; they invite butterflies and bees into my garden.
I have been so fascinated with them that I have started making floral bouquets with wildflowers to bring a few of them indoors with me. I am sharing some here for you. I hope you enjoy and I hope they bring as much joy to you as it does to me.
Thanks for sticking around and reading my random musing today. If you share my love for wildflowers, then let me share these lovely lines by Julie Andrews which totally resonates with me and I hope you will enjoy too.
Wildflowers – I envy them
Seeds cast by the wind to
land where they may
against most hot, most cold.
They persevere, roots shallow
Yet fierce and free.
They epitomize to me
all that I sometimes
yearn to be.
– Julie Andrews
