I have a love of flowers and I cannot think of a better way of getting one year older than to enjoy flowers received…flowers are God’s gift to us. Why else would we have flowers in so many colors and varieties. There is no such thing as an ugly flower.
Education Week at Brigham Young University 2013
As we have done every year for about 30 years now, Bob and I attended BYU Education Week. The BYU campus, with Mt. Timpanogos as its backdrop, is breathtakingly beautiful.
Campus Education Week began in 1922 and is believed to be the largest continuing education program of its type. For one week each August, the program utilizes the campus of Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah) to present more than 1,000 classes on education, religion, marriage, family relations, health, history, genealogy, science, youth interests, and many other areas. The program is designed primarily for adults, although anyone age 14 and over may attend.
The theme this year was “A People of Profound Learning.”
“But gaining knowledge is one thing, and applying it [is] quite another. Wisdom is the right application of knowledge, and true education—the education for which the Church stands—is the application of knowledge to the development of a noble and Godlike character.”
— David O. McKay
As always the flowers around BYU campus were beautiful and in full bloom!

Daises!! Take time to stop and enjoy the flowers!
This year has been much cooler than usual in Kanas City and early in the summer we had a lot of rain. My daises loved the weather this year and grew taller and bigger than usual.
