The Power of Flowers – Sundays in the South

Just in from the garden with a bundle of Glads. Flowers do many things. They bring joy, increase your ability to smile, herald in major life events, reduce stress and helps to ease the pain of a loss. You don’t have to be a gardener be able to acknowledge the power that flowers have. Use that power to warm someone’s heart. You and they will be all the better for it. Sunday Blessings to all.
