Earth laughs in flowers.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I loved that quote when I came across it,
and it seemed perfect for these roses
that grow in my mother-in-law's garden.
She's always been a flower-tender,
with beautiful blossoms
and leafy green plants
growing in her yard.
Even at 86, she's still out there,
tending the flowers ~
Digging in the dirt.
And happy to be there
where laughter springs forth
from the Earth.
