I think of Valentines Day and I think of hearts and flowers, and especially roses and carnations.
These cookies have both hearts and flowers.
Poets write of gardens as places for lovers to meet, as when Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote “Come into the garden, Maud, I am here at the gate alone.”
Romeo and Juliet, Pyramus and Thisbe, Adam and Eve, all spent time in gardens.
Claude Monet wrote of his flowers “More than anything, I must have flowers, always, always.”
Happy Valentines Day to you.
If perchance you are alone or heart broken at this time, remember “Jesus calls me His friend” John 15:15 and “I am part of Jesus’ flock and He is my Shepherd / Leader.” Psalm 23:1
