What about Colchicum flowers?

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Franklin Garden Club hosted a presentation on colchicum: the best kept autumn secret. Sometimes mistaken for corcus, the colchicum is their own species. They sprout leaves in the spring and after those leaves grow and die during the summer, they sprout flowers in the fall, up until a hard frost.

We read in 21st Century Science and Health, “Nature voices spiritual law and divine Love, but the human mortal mindset misinterprets nature. Arctic regions, sunny tropics, coral reefs, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, flowering deserts, and galaxies—all point to Mind, the spiritual intelligence they reflect. The floral apostles are hieroglyphs of Deity. Quantum mechanics, gravity, and the cosmos teach grand lessons. The stars make night beautiful, and the leaf turns naturally toward the light.”
