Weekly Photo Challenge

Four seasons

New England definitely has four separate seasons. But, when the challenge came through for seasons, I immediately thought about seasonal flowers.

I love spring flowers like Bleeding Hearts, have beds full of Day Lilies, appreciate the beauty of giant Sunflowers, and enjoy Poinsettias during the holidays.

I’ve been reminded that flowers can’t be eaten so why grown them. My response is flowers feed my soul. I hope they do yours too.

Snow is forecasted for tonight. I may need to print this photo and paste it on the refrigerator to remind me spring is coming. It is coming, right?  🙂

    You made a great selection Judy! Life would be pretty boring if we only grew what we can eat. I think you’re right, they feed our soul.

    That’s exactly my response to why I grow flowers and buy them for the house in winter. My soul needs them!
    30 days until it is officially Spring! We’re almost there! 🙂

    They feed your soul because you feed them! It seems like everything you touch turns to gold – and pink and red and yellow! You have a wonderful talent for creating beauty from dirt!

  10. Ha ha! Love the collage! I think you’ve already heard the joke: We have 4 seasons: flood season, construction season, leaf season and winter season. 😉

    This confirmed foodie thinks that food for the soul is just as important as food for the body.

  12. Even if it snows (it’s raining, here), it’s going to warm up into the 50s in a day or two. Spring WILL come. The flowers will bloom. The sun will shine. I can feel it coming 🙂

    I always enjoyed perennial gardening over vegetable gardening. There’s something about flowers that make me smile or as you say ‘feeds the soul’.

    “The Seasons of New England Flowers” sounds like a great book, Judy. Photos framed in a perfect arrangement as you presented would decorate a kitchen or lined along a shelf in oak frames. “Flowers feed our souls,” so true!

    Oh, by the way. My great grandfather lived in Sweden and was a stone mason. He met a young woman while he was creating a stone wall around a bourgeois family’s garden. A young woman would sit nearby on a bench, reading. Long love story (“Love: European Style”) short. They married, began a family, immigrated to Rockport, MA and he put tomatoes in their flower gardens. He was practical, while she was a dreamer. ♡♡
