Friendship and Flowers

Here are some flowers in my garden.
"But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes-
"Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature."
-Gerard De Nerval-
"Bee to the blossom, moth to the flame; Each to his passion; what's in a name?"
-Helen Hunt Jackson-
"A Cockscomb is a plant (Celosia cristata), of many varieties, cultivated for its broad, fantastic spikes of brilliant flowers; -- sometimes called garden cockscomb. Also the Pedicularis, or lousewort, the Rhinanthus Crista-galli, and the Onobrychis Crista-galli." .. source of info -

This post is dedicated to a dear friend  of  mine, Dhemz of Life's Perception & Inspiration
Happy birthday dear sis!
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...  It has no survival value;
rather it is one of those things that give value to survival."
-C. S. Lewis-
