The Flower Theory (100 Hartz Ave – Danville) continues to inspire thanks to owner Kathy’s creations, humor, and spirit. Artistry with florals is a talent I fondly admire (no talent for it myself), and here is a floral artisan and mood elevator who seems to be more of a magician when it comes to a show-stopping arrangement. Here’s hoping you’ll sense positive, healing, sweater weather vibes in Autumn Quotes Fall Floral Inspiration & Hope Rising.
In 2020 (which I refer to as LE PAUSE), the sight of flowers blooming in any season (even if it’s simply on IG) fills my heart with hope.

Autumn Quotes, Fall Floral Inspiration & Hope Rising
Can you even fathom the quiet, understated loveliness of the fall window box above!?!
With all of the changes in the marketplace and retail, I’m so thankful charming flower shops still exist and do such lovely work feeding souls.
Lady Bird Nailed It: Where Flowers Bloom, So Does Hope
The Flower Theory offers: pop-up markets, farm-inspired style, workshops, passion for the creative life, and a keen eclectic eye. Many of their offerings are in-house creations from reclaimed wood, vintage accents, and architectural finds.
Have a favorite flower shop blooming near you?
A Day in the Life of a Floral Artist
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 seek quotes about flowers and fall, and guess what?
While there seem to be a few stirring flower quotes like the one from Lady Bird Johnson, there are oodles of truly flat attempts to honor flowers! Hahahaha!
I was stunned to discover an internet and Pinterest full of not too 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.)
I began to realize the challenge for writers to capture the vast beauty of flowers with language.
Language simply cannot compete with flowers, pumpkin.
Pumpkins by The Flower Theory
BTW, I’m more of a pumpkin spice pretty sweater lover than a sipper of latte…you?
Flowers have been compared to flightless butterflies (and butterflies to flying flowers), and through the ages, they endure as symbols of affection, comfort, and romance.
But just now, I am grateful for the elegant reminder flowers offer to hope. They remind us that an ending is often the middle of the story since renewal, rebirth and restoration are up ahead.
With hope, life becomes more of a vibrantly wild eclectic wonderland, wondrously bursting with possibility and potential.
With hope, we can be a wee bit more patient under the sun, a tad more optimistic as we wait for raindrops, for the winds to change.
The Seed and The Flower
What I said earlier about a lame supply of floral-themed quotes? Oh, dear John Harrigan…I take it all back!
HAPPINESS SHARED IS THE FLOWER!
Oh, nature, help this forgetful soul see she is not living in you but IS you.
Help her see this messy wilderness as a very natural season.
Teach her greater humility and a slower pace – expand her capacity for the wisdom and patience you model so beautifully.
I know people who say they are done with hope. Done with peace until justice is restored. But I cannot deny the power of hope flowering in my soul.
Dear hope, you truly are a delicate balm that does not disappoint; a life-giving antidote to a despairing heart which longs for laughter.
Flowers + Blooming = Hope
Precious hope and blooming flowers – you two are best friends.

Fall Bucket List
Your bucket list for fall may look slightly different this year.
But as I reviewed this collection of activities from last year, only a few would not be prudent in 2020. I plan to roast marshmallows over a fire tonight and have already begun lighting candles each night at the dinner table.
Please PIN THIS POST to save for future reference and also let me know what you would add to the list!
