Different flowers look good to different people
Pick the flower when it is ready to be picked.
The flower that you spent time to care for does not grow
while the willow that your accidentally planted flourishes and gives shade.
- Chinese Proverbs
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
If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?
- G.K. Chesterton
flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.
