Floral Friday - a flower quote

"Came the spring and all its splendor, All its birds and all its blossoms, All its flowers, and leaves, and grasses." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
rondeletia in my garden
It has been a cold and windy few days in Sydney and not very Springlike at all. The above quote pretty much sums up everything that I am looking forward to when this unseasonal weather eventually goes away so I thought it apt to use it for this month's Floral Friday 'a flower quote' theme. The rondeletias in my garden always flower in September and its sweet scent and nectar brings in the birds and the bees to my garden (the rain can't keep them away!). I think it's a beautiful way to herald the change in seasons.

Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along next time, please email me for next month's theme.

That's a beautiful line. I'm really excited for you. I'm imagining chirping birds, fresh spring flowers bursting over large fields of green.. :D

Lovely quote! Fall is on the horizon. Love the fall; not the wintertime so much though. Winter seems to be so long and so severe here! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Sorry for the inconvenience!
