Autumn Quotes, Fall Floral Inspiration & Lady Bird Nailed It (Where Flowers Bloom, So Does Hope)

Last fall, I spotlighted a lovely shop in Cali called The Flower Theory (100 Hartz Ave – Danville) after feeling consistently woozy and inspired by owner Kathy’s creations, humor, and spirit. Artistry with florals is a talent I greatly admire since it’s foreign to me, and here is an artisan who clearly injects magic into every glorious arrangement. You can feel the positive, healing vibes, and they inspired today’s Autumn Quotes, Fall Floral Inspiration & Lady Bird Nailed It (Where Flowers Bloom, So Does Hope).

With all of the changes in the marketplace and retail, I’m so thankful small businesses and charming flower shops still exist, thrive, and do such lovely work feeding souls.

What is a day in the life of a hard-working flower shop like anyway?

Owner, Kathy writes,

“Well… one could say it’s helping you celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, say thank you, say you are sorry, mourn a loss, prepare for photo shoots, console a sick friend, 30 centerpieces to help raise money for a cause, mess up a diet, swat away yellow jackets while driving while picking up flowers from a local non-profit farm. It’s delivering with a smile.”

In Search of Quality Quotes About Flowers

Kathy’s creations inspired me to look at quotes about flowers and fall, and guess what?

While there are a few stirring quotes about flowers like the one from Lady Bird Johnson, there are hundreds of really really awful attempts to honor flowers!

Hahahaha!

I was stunned to discover an internet and Pinterestsphere full of not so lovely sentiments about arguably, the earth’s loveliest offering. (And also stirred to visit my local library, where all the purest poetry of flowers is apparently tucked away safely.)

A Reminder

But just now, I am so grateful for the simple elegance flowers offer as a reminder to hope, as a reminder that an ending is only the middle of the story because renewal and rebirth and restoration are on the way.

    Watching the young lady plant up her containers has me itching to change up my summer pots to fall. I think a trip to my local nursery is now on the agenda for this afternoon. I did cut some rose hips for inside this morning. A few branches in a white pitcher or pottery jug adds just the right amount of fall to my kitchen,

    I need that door mat Are You Serious Clark? Besides being a funny movie, my maiden name is Clark.

      Ha! I need that mat too. I think I love bringing branches inside even more than fresh flowers. 🙂
