Fill Your Life with Fragrance

Take a pause in your busy day and breathe in the fragrance of flowers


“Which is loveliest in a rose? Its coy beauty when it’s budding, or its splendor when it blows?” ~ George Barlow


“The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I’m taking more chances; I’m bold and proud.” ~ Paula Cole


“A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.” ~ Chinese proverb


“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.” ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.” ~ Author unknown


“Be the flower that gives its fragrance to even the hand that crushes it.”
~ Ali ibn Abi Talib

Maybe we should all be like flowers.

  4. Those quotes give us a lot to think about. I especially like the one by “author unknown”.

    Enjoy the week. Bye till next time.


  5. These flowers are beautiful Michele, as are their words. I can even smell them by just looking at them 😀

    • Don’t you just love flowers Mark 🙂 They make me feel happy.

      • Yes, muchly! 😀
        I can actually see them now, where before life just kept me too busy with my own problems to see the beauty under my nose…so to speak 😀
        There should be a law that there be meditations to start everyone’s day in a huge community garden in every city and town across the country. If they’re going to make laws at least let them benefit instead of just filling the coffers of the government all the time 😀

    This is such a good reminder to slow down and savour the moment. Beautiful photos! I really like that Paula Cole quote, too. That could be a daily mantra! 🌷

    This was a great post to start the day with!
    I think the olfactory senses (and memories) are under-appreciated sometimes. I notice and feel fragrances, scents, constantly. Not only sweet flowers of course, and all the other poetic sources (rain, fresh-mown grass) but also the smell of the earth, the waft of gasoline, the tannic waters of the swamp.
    Often, smells will take me instantly to a time and place. My dad’s shop, my mother’s kitchen, the attic of my childhood home.
    Indeed, one must appreciate all the fragrances of a truly aromatic world.

    Seek peace,
