None can have a healthy love for flowers unless he loves the wild ones.
- Forbes Watson
Observe this dew-drenched rose of Tyrian gardens
A rose today. But you will ask in vain
Tomorrow what it is, and yesterday
It was the dust, the sunshine, and the rains.
- Christina rosetti
With daffodils mad footnotes for the spring,
And asters purple asterisks for autumn
- Conrad Aiken
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.
- Heinrich Heine
