The Simple Pleasures in Life

Flower Power

I was out walking with a friend yesterday, we noticed some beautiful gardens.

Among the gorgeous, colourful flower beds, my eye fell upon some wild red poppies.  It brought back memories of my poppy painting days.  So I took a trip down memory lane and pulled out some of these quotes to accompany my poppy art.  I hope you enjoy them.

“I like it when a flower or a little tuft of grass grows through a crack in the concrete. It’s so fuckin’ heroic.”  — George Carlin

Let’s try to remember beauty and the simple pleasures of life — don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.

Flower Quote Nature Quote by Cherie Roe Dirksen

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God.  Because only then does one feel  that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.  As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.  And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”  — Anne Frank
