To the man’s shock, he noticed wild flowers there as well. They were flowers of field, and weed, and wood: dandelions, Queen-Anne’s-Lace, honey-suckle, and gnarly wild roses. One bouquet had a tangle of sweet yarrow, and chamomile that looked like miniature daises. There were peach blossoms, apple blossoms, wild day-lilies, egg-and-butter, lambs-ear, fiddle-head ferns.
There were more than he could name.
As he stopped to study this bizarre array, he began to notice that not two bouquets were alike. Each one used a different set of flowers. Only one had lilacs, only one had ferns, only one had Black-Eyed-Susan’s. They were all unique.
The blanket of colors, and cunning of the array, made even the crudest of flowers look beautiful. The mixed scents mingled together and creating an aroma sweeter than any other he had ever smelled.
“What man,” he ejaculated loudly, “whom when he died, would have friends so rich and so foolish, that they would send such an abundance of flowers; none of which are alike, and of kinds which are a disgrace to the others?”
His neighbor, hearing him, turned with a smile.
“Sir,” he said, “you must not have known my Lord. He knew each of these flowers by name, and by scent, and he would go through rain and wind and thorns to tend to them.”
“It is a sad thing, then,” acknowledged the observer, “that your Lord has died.”
“Ahh,” said the man with a smile, “but He is not dead. He has risen.”
