flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.
A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar.
Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth.
We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.
- Diane Ackerman
If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.

Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody.
Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy".
- Robert G. Ingersoll
