A selection of flowers from last years hanging baskets.
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat
To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat. ~Beverly Nichols
'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798
The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. ~Basho
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers. ~Heinrich Heine, The Hartz Journey
Pluck not the wayside flower;
It is the traveler's dower.
And, finally my picture of a hanging basket.
