Choosing to see the flowers

I hope you are enjoying my favorite season, fall.

My son, who is five, asked me today why there were flowers in the fall.  He thought that flowers bloomed only in the spring.  We talked about how there are many spring flowers, some summer flowers, and some reserved just for fall.  The rarer fall flowering plants make them all the more precious to us.

We even discovered that some roses grow largest toward the end of their life cycle.

Artist Henri Matisse knew how to look for the bright spots in life, even during difficult times.

I hope you enjoy this printable 8 1/2" x 11" page with a quote by Matisse.  Click on the image below to go to a pdf file that you can print at home.

Happy Fall!
