Texture Tuesdays #12...

See how nature ~ trees, flowers, grass ~ grows in silence,

see the stars, the moon and the sun,

how they move in silence ...

we need silence

to be able to touch souls

~Mother Teresa~

Sitting In Silence...


This is an older photo taken in our garden ~ the Monarch's love the cone flowers & I remember quietly following this particular butterfly one morning as he happily went from flower to flower :-)

The Rose ~ without the thorns ...

We have two shades of Peony in our garden ...
the pale pink/white bloomed first ...


like delicate crepe paper ...

and then

the deep rich pink ...


the rose

without

the

thorns ...
When words escape

flowers

speak
