But sometimes perfume is stinky...

Never take anything in life but flowers, and from flowers, only the perfume. -Emilie Carles

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE flowers.

    Great quote!!!
    One of my ex-girlfriends said she didn't like flowers as a gift because pulling them from the ground and out of their realm made them ugly. Keeping them in the garden made them beautiful.

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    can you send me that photo? I would like to do a painting of it sometime.
    Thanks

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    I think I know what she means but speaking in concret terms I think there are better things in flowers than the perfume. Which, in abstract terms, means that what's best in things depends on the observant - we shouldn't judge everything and decide what's good or bad, it depends.
    God, I'm philosophical today! :P

    I am back and I've had enough flowers there, to make me sneeze for a year. How about some fumes for a change?

    Connie;
    Did Rob watch Survivor last night? Sooo good!

    fb;
    I am glad you thought so! I believe a lot of what was said in that post.

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    cathy,
    He loved Survivor last night. Usually I do not watch it but when I caught a glimpse of him watching it was fun to see how excited he gets over the show.

    Hugs,
    Connie

    I love springtime and flower...if only they didn't make me so sneezy all the time. I've loved all the photos :)

  1. Blogger Tee said:

    When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Connie;
    I don't think I've missed a single episode; I love watching Survisor and the Amazing Race.

    Stephanie;
    They make me sneezy as well; I've just popped an allergy pill this morning, actually.

    Tee;
    I am hope with both boys; all is as well as can be expected!

    Jase;
    Another great quote! Is the one a Jase original?

    My partner never buys me flowers, because he'd rather give me a plant, which is still alive and growing.

    I tell him, I don't mind getting dead things, but no luck yet. :)

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    i missed you too.
    no real allergies, just withdrawals. I missed the city.

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    Flowers in photos are sometimes better than flowers in real life, even without the smell. My eyes, my poor itchy eyes!

    Some days I wish I lived in Arizona.
