The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.
Different flowers look good to different people
Pick the flower when it is ready to be picked.
The flower that you spent time to care for does not grow
while the willow that your accidentally planted flourishes and gives shade.
- Chinese Proverbs
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places
in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.- Gertrude S. Wister
You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.
- Hal Borland
