To pick a flower is so much more satisfying than just observing it, or photographing it...
So in later years, I have grown in my garden as many flowers as possible for children to pick.
- Anne Scott-James
I cast my heart into my rhymes,
That you, in the dim coming times,
May know how my heart went with them
After the red-rose-bordered hem.
- William Butler Yeats
Do not the petals flutter down,
Just like this?
flowers are love's truest language.
- Park Benjamin
