  There is a little flower shop right down the street from me.

I fondly named it the "Candy Store", it smells as sweet as sweet can be.

Daffodils and daisies, chrysanthemums and more, provide the delightful aromas that fill my favorite store.

The bloom of the giant lily, the bud of a single rose, one stands for devotion, the other love, both appealing to the nose.

Some folks are allergic. Eyes water and they sneeze.

When the pollen from these bloomers float gently in the breeze.

As for me I am lucky. I can walk right through the door.

And enjoy God's gracious loveliness inside my "candy store".
