Flowers Growing Free

Flowers Growing Free, 84 x 84 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2004.

Sitting on my patio amidst my meager flower garden, I am reminded that we all need to re-pot for growth. Flowers that had once bloomed magnificently now begin to wither on the vine. After checking the amount of water, the amount of sunshine, the direction of the sun, the insects, etc.,  it occurs to me that  my favorite geranium needs a new pot. And so do we all, from time to time.

Flowers Growing Free has always been one of my favorite personal quilts. For much of the year it hangs in my library — as a gentle reminder to not only grow, but to grow magnificently!
