A cherry tree
And there are no flowers,
But the spring breeze
Brings forth myriad blossoms.
- Ikkyu Sojun
flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
-Henry Ward Beckford
I ’d be a butterfly born in a bower, Where roses and lilies and violets meet.
- Thomas Haynes Bayly
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
