Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root,
and in that freedom bold.
~ William Wordsworth
More Summer Wildflowers
For me, summer and wildflowers are synonymous. And one of my favourite things to do is go out for a day to enjoy the wildflower meadows in the foothills and mountains of Kananaskis Country in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. For me, it’s pure bliss.
“In summer, the song sings itself.”
~ William Carlos Williams

but the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers.
“To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie
True Poems flee—”
~ Emily Dickinson
“The hum of bees is the voice of the garden.”
~ Elizabeth Lawrence
“Happiness … not in another place but this place,
not for another hour but this hour.”
