I Picked These Flowers For You


Flowers Through the Years

A child’s handful of wildflowers given with all the love in the world
A corsage of tiny roses worn on prom night
Graduation day proudly brings a dozen long stems of red roses
Bright bunches bought to brighten a first apartment’s humble furnishings
The Wedding day bouquet full of passion and grandeur
Baby’s arrival brings a sweet nosegay
A wreath laid on the grave and we become one with the flowers

An original poem by Cindy


I picked this tiny bouquet of flowers this morning and wanted to share its simple beauty with you along with some verse.

Very lovely poetry and flowers!

Cindy said...

Alyson ~ Thank you. It was spur of the moment so I may do some revising to it but I think it's adequate - haha.

Cindy, your flowers deserve a poem! You have many talents. Hold onto those baby years as they will go that fast. My first baby is now bigger than me.

Cindy said...

Sarah ~ you are too kind. It's funny, she's only 9 months old but already she's changed so much and she is such her own little person.

I love your train photos. I've never seen a 4-2-0 locomotive model before that I can recall. I had to look it up to find the class name is Jervis and add it to my Steam Locomotive Classes list.

Cindy said...

Randall - I'm glad you liked the photos. The 4-2-0 that I think you are referring to is Bachmann's 1837 Lafayette. I'm not sure if we have any other 4-2-0's, I have an inventory someplace, just not handy at the moment.
You'll have to check back in a week or so, we have a new locomotive coming and I am very excited. We might have to get some track set up just to see it run a little bit before November.
