Thelma, lovely quotes! My favorite is "Plants give us oxygen for the lungs and for the soul." How very true! Flowers and plants always have a way of making me smile and feel at peace. The energy I derive simply for observing plant life in nature is astounding. Believe it or not, whenever I feel really tired, I go out for a walk and look, really look at the beauty of Mother Nature. It's like charging my batteries! :)
