Angel number eleven

She found these morning glories self-seeded in an abandoned garden, so she's taking them to a new home where they will bring pleasure every morning. Only an angel can transplant a mature morning glory plant.

A thoughtful observer of birds might wonder how my angels, with their silly little wings, can fly, and here are my thoughts. G.K. Chesterton claimed that  "Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly." They don't use wings in the same way as birds. Their whole way of being--thought, word, deed and bodily makeup--is conducive to flight. They could probably fly if they just flapped their arms really hard, but that's not necessary because their wings provide all the lift they need while their hand are free to carry flowers.
