“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 eglantine.”
―William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream


Earth laughs in flowers.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Hamatreya”


I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Afternoon on a Hill”


“Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, drawing them from their homes.”
―Clare Ansberry, The Women of Troy Hill:  The Back-Fence Virtues of Faith and Friendship
