Science, or para-science, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to.
But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough.
Too much attention, like too much feeding, and weeding and hoeing,
inhibits and embarrasses them.

flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.
- Antonio Porchia
flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
-Henry Ward Beckford
Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time.
- Edmund Spenser
