* “Bird of Paradise symbolizes joyfulness. It also symbolizes magnificence.
It can also be used to indicate exciting and wonderful anticipation.”
*quote from Flower Meanings at the Flower

A friend of mine is currently spending some time in Los Angeles, CA. and on one of her daily walks she captured this picture of a Bird of Paradise plant growing on someone’s yard.
The official flower of Los Angeles is the Bird of Paradise.

She sent the picture to me and of course it prompted a haiku! 🙂

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3 NKJV
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

Psalm 139:14 NKJV
