Way Back When and Even Now: Flowers


Oct 9, 2019

Even Now

Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light.     
~ Theodore Roethke

Broccoli is actually a flower.

The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly.
~ William Wordsworth

Some plants such as orchids do not need soil to grow-they get all of their nutrients from the air

Flowers are love’s truest language.
~ Park Benjamin

Some plants produce toxic substances that kill other plants around them-the sunflower is an example

Every flower must grow through dirt.     
~ Laurie Jean Sennott

One of the world’s rarest, largest, smelliest, and strangest looking flower is the titan arum, or the corpse flower. It is called the corpse flower because it smells like a rotting dead body. The bloom is over 8 foot tall and 12 feet in circumference. They smell like rotting flesh in order to attract flies, their preferred pollinator. People have been known to pass out from the smell!

“A weed is but an unloved flower.”
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

False dragonhead or obedient plant has a spike full of flowers that can be bent into position

“When life is not coming up roses
Look to the weeds
and find the beauty hidden within them.”
~ L.F.Young

~ Wildflowers don’t care where they grow.     

~ Dolly Parton

Short and simple today! Hope everyone has a great day!
