Where Flowers Bloom

After an emotional week that began with the tears of Memorial Day and concluded with the frustration of Haditha, maybe it’s appropriate to think about these words.
“Where flowers bloom
So does hope”
-Lady Bird Johnson-

Have a safe and happy weekend

There is always hope, better days may be slow in coming, but they will. We have lived in worse times, and we will keep going. This is America, we are still relatively free, and we can make a difference. The fact we do this is proof! Keep your chin up!

A nice thing to remember in these times. Thanks for the quote (although my first thought was--"Where flowers bloom, you know there is a lot of cow manure"--we've had some of that, too).

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi PoP,

I think the Day Lily was Lady Bird's favorite flower.
For the younguns and those that don't know, the 1st Lady's project(1st Ladies are expected to pick one) was the "Beautification of America", and that is why as you drive across this wonderful land you see wildflowers along the interstate.

When one visits our Nations Capitol, one may want to stop at the Lady Bird Johnson Park. It's across from the Iwo Jima Statue, on the Virginia side.

I also think there are many a flower named after Lady Bird.

A wonderful quote from a wonderful 1st Lady.

Peace. Esperanza. Charité.

How nice to find something so beautiful and cheering. I always kind of liked Lady Bird and her Texas Bluebonnet project.

I remember driving the highways of Texas in the early 80's after Ladybird had beautified them with wildflowers. Amazing.

Yes, get sad, be angry ... act, but also find solace in natural beauty.

What a fine photo.

Looking forward to another week.
