  • The cool spring has finally ushered in May flowers!  
    I love cut flowers from the garden. There is a simple, happy satisfaction that comes from picking a bundle of peonies for the kitchen work table.  
    Just be sure to shake the ants off first.  
    The other thing about a cool spring with adequate rain fall is that the weather is acting as a sorts of preservative: All those beautiful blooms are lasting much longer than normal.
    When planning a garden, I always consider a seasonal offering of cut flowers for indoor arrangements.

  • At my church we talk a lot about beauty.
    The ancient Greeks and the early Christians elevated three prime virtues: truth, goodness and beauty, and as Russian novelist Dostoevsky wrote, “Beauty will save the world.”
    A longing for beauty is primal. A lack of it brings despair.
