A Spirit of Beauty Ineffable

"Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof.


Take that poppy seed, for instance: it lies in your palm, the merest atom of matter, hardly visible, a speck, a pin's point in bulk,


but within it is imprisoned a spirit of beauty ineffable, which will break its bonds and emerge from the dark ground and blossom in a splendor so dazzling as to baffle all powers of description." ~ Celia Thaxter

Oh my goodness!

I think I will just leave you to digest the words of Celia Thaxter as she has so eloquently described the process of planting a seed and watching it grow into a spectacular creation of beauty. How does this miracle happen?

I can not find the words to describe the deep soulful joy I feel watching a seed grow and become a gorgeous flower. So...I will share a few images of the grandeur I see "so dazzling as to baffle all the powers of description".

Today we celebrate the purple poppy!
