Individuality & Flowers

by Lorraine on May 8, 2009

” Wildflowers are neither vain nor haughty, neither jealous nor servile.   Living in accord with their unique mission, characterizing the Buddhist principle of the equality of cherry, peach, plum and damson blossoms, they neither envy other flowers nor belittle themselves.

They take pride in their individuality, knowing that each is a flower with a bloom like no other. Even the prettiest and most delicate wildflowers are by no means weak.

Thay may seem fragile, but they are strong, unperturbed by rain or wind.”

The monkeyflower is a nice choice for this piece since it is so variable in color. Each individual is different, and each is lovely.
