To pick a flower is so much more satisfying than just observing it, or photographing it...
So in later years, I have grown in my garden as many flowers as possible for children to pick.
- Anne Scott-James
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
- T.S. Eliot
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking.
but even on solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.
- Vita Sackville-West
flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.
- Chinese proverb
