"A man (or woman) should hear a little music,
read a little poetry,
and see a fine picture
everyday of his life, in order that worldly cares may not
obliterate the sense of the beautiful
which God has implanted in the human soul." 

(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Now that looks like someone's practicing for wedding flowers... Very pretty! And I couldn't agree more with that quote.

That quote, which I'd never before read, just about encapsulates my philosophy. I think I'll have to blog about it, and link back to you! ....if that's okay.

Lorrie, this is my first visit to your site. Have to say -Encouraged I am - Inspired - I am and I so love the beautiful flowers and the words you've written - thank you so much.

Lorrie - this is a very meaningful quote and I believe that's why we enjoy blogging so much. The world is made so much smaller through the magic of computers. There are so many people who share beauty with their readers.
