The gardens that make us happiest flourish because we have taken the time to make sure they feed our souls and fill a special place in our lives.
Sometimes you have to think about what you really want from your garden, once the beds are laid out and the rose bushes planted.
- Lindley Karstens
A cherry tree
And there are no flowers,
But the spring breeze
Brings forth myriad blossoms.
- Ikkyu Sojun
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
Since Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.
Greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved women as a tribute to the goddess Iris, whose duty it was to take the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
