Gardens Where Unfolding Flowers Live

"Nothing is more the child of art than a garden." - Sir Walter Scott

Flowers are flourishing in and around my neighbourhood overlooking Semiahmoo Bay. Their fancy petals flounce and flutter a little nervously at the whim of the slightest breezes. Like fashion models about to parade down the catwalk, some seem to say: Stop here. Enjoy my finery. I am living art and a universe is unfolding within me.

Still the kid I used to be

  4. “I am living art and a universe is unfolding within me.” I have to say that’s so true to see all of these art flowers emanating inborn energy. Each flower exists in the Universe and the Universe is within each flower.


  5. They certainly do have much to tell us. Now if only we would learn.
