For Quote It Saturday, Flowers on Saturday and Weekend Flowers

There is a lesson in each flower,
A story in each stream and bower,
In every herb on which you tread
Are written words, which rightly read
Will lead you from earth's fragrant sod,
To hope, to holiness, and God. 
-- Irish poet Thomas Osborne Davis

Orchard Apples: LadyD Books

As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. -- Song of Solomon 2:3
I am reading a great book that my cousin sent me, called "The Flowers and Fruits of the Bible" by John Chancellor and illustrated by W.H. McCheane... it's wonderful! All of the above quotes are from the book. For more details, visit

The Flowers and Fruits of the Bible

Have you added up how many types of flowers or trees are mentioned in the Bible? I haven't but I guess you can just about google search anything. Maybe I'll add this to one of my summer goals, as I watch my garden of fruits, vegetables and flowers grow.

Hope you'll stop by these cool folks!
