The Cosmos in the Heart of a Flower~

When we look deeply into
the heart of a flower,
we see clouds, sunshine,
minerals, time, the earth,
and everything else in the cosmos in it
Thich Nhat Hanh
Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light
Theodore Roethke
Let life be a deep let-go. See [God/Spirit/All That Is] opening millions of flowers every day without forcing the buds.”
Bhagwan Shree Rayneesh
Gardens are poems, where you stroll with your hands in your pockets
Pierre-Albert Birot
In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends
Kozu Kokakura
“To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music; it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy, than to attempt to fully understand.”
Henry T. Tuckerman
Cheers to you from Queen Elizabeth Gardens Vancouver BC~

  1. Loved it all Cindy. I’ve been to QE Gardens in Vancouver but not at this time of year, thanks for taking me there today too! I really loved the unique double daffodil with the salmon coloured centre. Can you imagine planting that many tulips? WOW


  2. As always, Cindy beautiful photos.
    I am an admirer of Thich Nhat Hanh.
    After reading the caption from Kozu Kokaura I will have to visit Google.
    Flowers in joy or sadness any occasion.
