ART, FOOD AND FLOWERS
This is a gorgeous painting recently done by my youngest son Rab. I would like to share it with you.
Flowers and food are just meant for each other therefore I blog but......

Flowers always make people better, happier; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul - Luther Burbank
It is at the edge of a petal that love waits - William Carlos Williams
Where flowers bloom so does hope - Lady Bird Johnson
Flowers are love's truest language - Park Benjamin
The earth laughs in flowers - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Flowers are the sweetest things God made and forgot to put a soul into - Henry Ward Beecher
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers - Claude Monet
With a few flowers in the garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy - Lope de Vega
The actual flower is the highest fulfilment, and are not here exclusively for herbaria, county floras and plant geography : they are here first of all for delight - John Ruskin
