As a gemstone, silver represents hope, unconditional love, mysticism, kindness, and psychic abilities.

Silver, as a conductor, is believed to draw negative energy out of the body and replace it with positive energy. It is said to help clarify our mind; aiding communication and eloquence.

“It is health that is real wealth; not pieces of gold or silver.”

Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold.”

“Life is about finding those silver linings and turning them into gold.”

“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.”

Martin Luther

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.”

    1. Thank you so much Jo – and you!
      Looking forward to a return of more seasonal weather – though the rain doesn’t seem to have dampened the bee activity!
