Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ...
a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.
And the anticipation nurtures our dream.
- Barbara Winkler
Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time.
- Edmund Spenser
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
- T.S. Eliot
It will never rain roses.
When we want to have more roses,
we must plant more roses.
- George Eliot
