Give Me Your Flowers ~

Give me Flowers

I would rather have one little rose
From the garden of a friend,
Than to have the choicest flowers
When my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have a pleasant word
In kindness said to me,
Then flattery when my heart is still
And this life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile
From friends I know are true,
Then tears shed around my casket
When this world I bid adieu.

Bring me all the flowers today,
Whether pink, or white, or red;
I’d rather have one blossom now
Than a truckload when I’m dead.

  1. did you grow those gorgeous roses? If so, I’m impressed!

    Also, if that’s your columbine, I’ll swap you seeds from mine for some seeds from yours. I have a dark wine color, a yellow, and a blue and white.

  2. I love those roses!

    About the project blue, how often do we post blue pictures, etc? I looked but couldn’t find more info on the link.

    Have a good trip!

  3. Hi Ellen,

    Was going to tell you that I find myself praying for my plants to live! 🙂 I figure God can always fill in whatever I am lacking in my normally “brown” thumb! 😉
