I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at.
I know the beauty of our Lord by it.
- Gerald Manley Hopkins
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

- William Wordsworth
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
- Iris Murdoch
