The Amen! of Nature is always a flower.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
The Earth Laughs in flowers
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
When bright flowers bloom
Parchment crumbles, my words fade
The pen has dropped ...
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.
