FLOWERS
and foliage too !

"Earth laughs in flowers"

- Ralph Waldo Emmerson
- 1803 -1882.

Flowers and foliage are fascinating, frivolous and fabulous. In the above collage are a few to be found in my garden. I would be utterly forlorn without them !

Please click on the collage to take you to larger images.

This is my post for ABC Wednesday where you can find further frippery and frolics featuring the letter F.

    wonderful pictures - as always. Particularly like the geranium plenum. I've just been reading The Bold and Brilliant Garden by Sarah Raven purely for the pictures of the flowers.

  15. Great post and pictures! I've never heard that quote by Emmerson before, but I love it! What better way to express happiness than to just burst into flower? I wish I could do that! LOL.
