Language of Flowers

Say it with flowers,
pure essence of expression
love's distillation...

Linking with
Haiku my Heart
Recuerda mi Corazon

I recently read a book called "the Secret Language of Flowers". The book was so so but the parts about flowers and their meanings was fascinating.
This rose has a lot to say!
Happy Friday, Sue!
Stephanie said…
oh yes to Kim...I read that book recently too...

how very interesting to read the Victorian era thoughts on different flowers, one of my favorites, the lowly sunflower did not fare well.

This post takes my breath away!!! WOW!! The rose is exquisite and the words so tender! Wishing you well! Cathy

Dear Sue, I love this haiku and your rose radiates all the way across the pond to me here in the late evening, a light that draws me in and fills my heart with beauty...

This is gorgeous and would be wonderful to share with I Heart Macro tonight (Saturday)

I do hope you'll participate in the Gratitude Quilt this year… information about what it is and how to participate can be found @ this link

If I already asked you and you sent me something, please forgive me for asking again. I'm trying to reach as many people as possible. I don't use last names and so when I look at the quilt so far and see the same first name more than once I'm not certain if it was from you or someone else with the same name.

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy feeling all loved up in the comfort of haiku... Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring... Happy weekend all haiku lovers... Haiku my Heart Recuerda mi Corazon

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
