I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.
- Lope de Vega
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
- Walt Whitman
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
