The Silver Lining of June is the explosion of flowers. Their colors, scents and omnipresence is absolutely magical! I love the symbolism of flowers. Since antiquity, flower symbolism has been a significant part of cultures around the world. Flowers accompany us and brighten our spirits in every major event in life–birth, marriage, holidays, graduations, illness, and finally death. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The earth laughs in flowers.” Here are some images from around Santa Barbara this week.
The rose garden across from the Mission in Santa Barbara is a great Silver Lining in our community!
This photograph was taken by my friend Blue Caleel. I love its lightness and color.
Flowers don’t worry about how the’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.
