Autumn Quotes, Fall Floral Inspiration & Hope Rising

The Flower Theory (155 Railroad, Downtown Danville, CA) continues to inspire thanks to florist owner Kathy’s creations, humor, and spirit. Artistry with florals is a talent I fondly admire (zero 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 the 2020s (are we calling them that? and can I continue to refer to the pandemic as LE PAUSE?), the sight of flowers blooming in any season on any medium (even IG) fills my heart with hope.

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?

A Reminder

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.

Just now, I remain grateful for the elegant symbol of hope flowers offer us. They remind that an ending is often the middle of the story since renewal, 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.

    โ€œThe earth laughs in flowers.โ€ I love that! Wildflowers are my favorite…so thankful to live out where they are so plentiful. I love noticing the order different ones appear throughout the year on regular walks I take with my husband. Wild white daisies are my very fav and are some of the first to appear when spring hits. Right now Iโ€™m loving these tiny purple looking daisies with gold centers…I picked some just yesterday! The perfect flower for LSU fans! I agree with Anne…โ€Iโ€™m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.โ€ Every year I want to make one of those driftwood Christmas tree wall hangings…maybe this will be the year! Praying you & your son are able to enjoy your October with the encouragement of improving health.

      Your walks through wildflowers sound so wonderful, Amy. I too want to make one of those driftwood trees because I think it is a timeless look. My son just moved into his new condo so he is getting there with our help. That reno will be on the blog soon. I’m doing so much better and gaining some weight finally. Thanks so much for enjoying today’s post, and I hope you and yours are feeling well. ๐Ÿ™‚
