While researching new and different flowers I came across this excellent article about the Best Flowers for each month of spring. What a great find and an awesome reminder that we should take a moment to enjoy the beauty we can find each month in the flowers around us.
As we enter the month of May, pay close attention to such flowers as the Peony, Lilac and Garden Roses. In June Dahlias will also join the list. The article even suggested some beautiful pairings for a spectacular bouquet in your home. Why not try the following:
• Daffodils and Daisies, Iris in shades of yellow-white blue
• Lilac and Ranunculus in shades of lavender and blush
• Vibernum and Calla Lilly in shades of white, yellow and green
• Sweet Peas and Hyacinth and Lisianthus in shades of bright pinks
You may have recently seen that Fleurenasci is now making rosaries. Thank you for the warm responses we have already received! As you embraced their gorgeous outer beauty we hope you will see and embrace their essence as well. How fitting to blend the essence of flowers, the essence of life and the essence of the rosary.
According to catholics.com, “The word rosary comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary. If you were to ask what object is most emblematic of Catholics, people would probably say, “The rosary, of course.” We’re familiar with the images: the silently moving lips of the old woman fingering her beads; the oversized rosary hanging from the waist of the wimpled nun; more recently, the merely decorative rosary hanging from the rearview mirror.”
As I read this article, I had no idea the word rosary meant a garland of roses. How beautiful to have a rosary made from roses in your garden, or even from a life celebration of a loved one.
The article also stated that after “Vatican II, the rosary fell into relative disuse. The same is true for Marian devotions as a whole. But in recent years the rosary has made a comeback, and not just among Catholics. Many Protestants now say the rosary, recognizing it as a truly biblical form of prayer—after all, the prayers that comprise it come mainly from the Bible.”
