Where the Flowers Cry "What Cheer?" Photography & Text by Keith R Wahl
A little bit of joy
Roger Williams Park is a beautiful oasis in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island. It's a place where people have come to enjoy the outdoors, learn about nature, and relax.
One of the things that makes Roger Williams Park so special is its abundance of flowers. From spring to fall, the park is awash in a sea of color, from the delicate blooms of the cherry blossoms to the vibrant hues of the fall foliage.
This year, the flowers at Roger Williams Park have been particularly cheerful. Perhaps it's because the world has been through so much in recent years, and we're all craving a little bit of joy. Or perhaps it's because the park's gardeners have been working especially hard to create a beautiful and welcoming space for visitors.
Whatever the reason, the flowers at Roger Williams Park have put a smile on our faces. The flowers remind us of the simple joys in life and the hope that comes with a new day.
The term "What cheer Netop!" is a traditional greeting from Rhode Island. It is thought to have originated with the Narragansett people, who used it to welcome visitors to their land. The greeting means "What good news?" and it reflects the warm and welcoming spirit of the people of Rhode Island.
The flowers at Roger Williams Park are a symbol of the good news that surrounds us, even in the darkest of times. They remind us of the beauty of nature and the hope that comes with a new day.
