“Even though you’ve cut them, tulips take up water in the vase and get bigger. In a way, they continue to live. The notion that in every phase of existence ~ even the very end ~ we can still find a way to grow is one I hold dear.” ~ Carolyne Roehm
Good morning, dear friends. Today, I am sharing the thoughts and floral design talent of Carolyne Roehm. Her thoughts, in my opinion, are important for everyone to consider. Shouldn’t we all ‘hold dear’ how marvelous it is to learn and grow through every phase of our existence? Carolyne Roehm design.
Many of you may or may not be familiar with Carolyne Roehm. Ms. Roehm worked for Oscar de la Renta for many years, is the author of several books (Flowers, being my favorite) and is an amazing gardener. She gardens at her home in Connecticut ~ ‘Weatherstone.’ And, with the flowers from her lush gardens, she creates exquisite floral designs. Carolyne Roehm design.
“I began photographing my flowers to keep them with me ~ to keep me company in winter until the crocuses appear, and the pleasure begins again.” ~ Carolyne Roehm
I hope you have enjoyed a pinch of spring beauty on this first Sunday of March. As you go about the week, I also hope you will keep Ms. Roehm’s meaningful words and these images with you. Perhaps, they will inspire you to reflect on something you have always been interested in and would enjoy learning. Or, something you already enjoy but would like to know more about. Because, as Henry Ford tells us ~ “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.”
Wishing you and yours a beautiful day.
May your week ahead be filled with many moments of great joy!
“I’m still learning.” ~ Michaelangelo
