flower power

Happy is she who has the power to gather wisdom from a flower. For Katie, it's the pink and white peonies that unfurl as if on cue for her June first birthday. The exotic Bird of Paradise always makes me think of Layne, who discovered them during her South American travels as a flight attendant. Anne, it'll always be happy-hued hibiscus flowers for you. And roses say Kathleen because they're beautiful (and it's her middle name). A bouquet of friends who have the wisdom to gather joy from a soft petaled bit of nature and perfume the world with their goodness.
