flowers are not made by singing "Oh, how beautiful," and sitting in the shade.
- Rudyard Kipling
Earth laughs in flowers.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals.
Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and difident, others again are plain, honest and upright.
- Henry Ward Beecher
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
