I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows
Quite over canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with elgantine.

Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody.
Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy".

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
- Elizabeth Barrett Brownbing
flowers really do intoxicate me.
- Vita Sackville-West
