“I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

-Kahlil Gibran
"Song of the Flower XXIII”
Ella Griffin, The Flower Arrangement

“She could go on asking herself why roses had thorns or she could be thankful that thorns had roses.”
Ella Griffin, The Flower Arrangement

“As if in answer to her question, an odor of decay seeped through thee doorway from the darkened shop.
Senescence, she thought. A beautiful word for what happened to all living things as they progressed toward death. Petals fading, leaves falling, stems beginning to rot.”
Ella Griffin, The Flower Arrangement

Golden peonies bowing their heads beneath blue delphinium bells. Delicate pink anemones threaded between freckled green orchids. Soft apricot roses woven together with velvety purple irises.
