The feeling we get when we look at a beautiful flower is one of inner peace. It’s an enveloping feeling that’s difficult to actually put into words. It brings instant peace, sensitivity, and a comforting sense that everything is OK.
It’s no wonder there are so many people with beautiful flowers in their yards.
We give bouquets of flowers on special occasions, office buildings fully landscape their front entrance with exquisitely landscaped gardens, and we bring bright colorful flowers to people in the hospital to bring brightness to their stay.
I am someone who has been through a huge loss as we know, and can’t tell you enough how nature, lovely flowers, beautiful plants, and simply being outdoors has carried me through my grieving thus far. God certainly knew what he was doing when he created these beautiful species!
Before I go to bed at night, I go through pictures and look at all the beautiful flowers images to promote a positive energy in my soul. I recently realized some are actually extinct. 🙁 There are a just a handful of arboretums who have the species to cherish.
Enjoy looking at the Beautiful Flowers. I certainly do!
