For flower delivery to Evanston, you can even look to Northbrook florists, flower shops in Deerfield, or florists in Glenview because our shops are real neighborhood florists. You can count on Chicago florists and Wilmette flower shops to deliver fresh flowers right to the recipient's door.
There is that in the glance of a flower which may at times control the greatest of creation's braggart lords.
- John Muir
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
Lowly, with a broken neck,
The crocus lays her cheek to mire.
- George Meredith
The garden should be adorned with roses and lilies, the turnsole, violets, and mandrake.
There you should have parsley, cost, fennel, southern-wood, coriander, sage, savory, hyssop, mint, rue, dittany, smallage, pellitory, lettuces, garden-cress, and peonies.
There should also be beds planted with onions, leeks, garlic, pumpkins and shallots.
The cucumber growing in its lap, the drowsy poppy, the daffodil and brank-ursine ennoble a garden.
Nor are there wanting, if occasion further thee, pottage-herbs, beets, herb-mercury, orache, sorrel and mallows, anise, mustard, white pepper and wormwood do good service to the gardener.
- Alexander of Neckham
