Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning. ~Lydia M. Child


The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. ~Jean Giraudoux

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay


Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin

      Thank you, DR. That was all a half a block from my house. I had fun playing with the pictures. I took some at the beach, but somehow managed to lose that part. Alas. Will have to try again next month when I’m there with my daughters and granddaughter.
