Happy flowers


These flowers caught my attention today. They were growing on the side of a neighbor's house. There was something about these red flowers, it was almost like they were celebrating the warmth of the morning sun. They seemed vibrant with a "happy personality."

"Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock."
~ Henry Ward Beecher, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers.
