floral colors in the garden

What a desolate place would be a world without a flower!
It would be a face without a smile,
a feast without a welcome.
Are not flowers the stars of the earth,
and are not our starts
the flowers of the heaven.

~ A.J. Balfour

With a few flowers in my garden,
half a dozen pictures and some books,
I live without envy.

~ Lope de Vega

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 Saint-James
