Empire Mixed Flowers

For today Ruby Tuesday, I'm featuring my red summer empire flower. This flower comes in many different colors, and it is continuously blooming throughout the summer, way into early winter also.

I had this flower in red, deep purple, pink, and white. When it is dried, I broke it off, and another branch would grow.

The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.
~Lao Tzu

As we grow better, we meet better people.
~Elbert Hubbard

If growing up is the process of creating ideas and dreams about what life should be, then maturity is letting go again.
~Mary Beth Danielson

The trick is growing up without growing old.
