“I must have flowers, always and always”
[Claude Monet]

Claude Monet, the founder of Impressionistic painting, renowned for scenes of nature and gardens overflowing with flowers. He would paint the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.
“…..like a grain of fire
God plants His undivided power
Buries His thought to vast for worlds
In seed and root and blade and flower….” [Thomas Merton]

May we all give thanks for the beauty of our earth and flowers, knowing we are blessed to be one with Divine Spirit in all things.
