This is where it all began. I was pruning the fronds of this sea cycas( cycasrumphii) this morning at our front garden lot, when out of the blues a thought zapped through my mind. Cut Flowers. Blogging about cut flowers. Blogging about flower arrangement. Cut flowers from your immediate environment. Flower arrangement materials within walking distance round and about your house. And to make it interesting why not blog about the cut flowers arrangement on daily basis? Couldn't resist the temptation. Thus the birth of this blog, today Saturday, 14th June,2008. I am glad to celebrate this Father's Day with this blog..He..he..he
Flowers bring peace into a room. A posy or a single bloom- can dispel a restless mood An atmosphere of quietude- haunts the place where flowers are. You forget the things that jar. So still they stand in vase or bowl. Their silence speaks unto the soul. Day by day now autumn comes- beautiful chrsysanthemums- bring proud summer to its close. Heedless of the fading rose- rich and deep their colours blaze. Season of the mellow days-as chrysanthemums unfold- wine and amber,bronze and gold. From a blue jug by my chair-they watch me and I am aware- of their beauty blessing me- with their own tranquility. Who comes within this calmingspell- cannot doubt that all is well.
