In the hope of reaching the moon
that blossom at their feet.
- Albert Schweitzer
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
The gardens that make us happiest flourish because we have taken the time to make sure they feed our souls and fill a special place in our lives.
Sometimes you have to think about what you really want from your garden, once the beds are laid out and the rose bushes planted.
- Lindley Karstens
They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.
- Ernest Dowson
