i must have flowers, always, and always. ~ claude monet
nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. ~ georgia o’keeffe
i am amazed at the beauty that my Grandma has been able to produce for years in such rocky soil. it would have been wondrous to see what she could have done with good soil. she told me that when she first started her garden here back in the 70’s – she worked and worked to clear the rocks out of the first 4-6″ of dirt. but the rocks just keep rising to the surface. my uncle says they must be affected less by gravity, since they are always rising to the surface.
i said “grandma, there are some flowers out there that look like crocuses, what are they?” she responded, “they are winter crocuses”.
as for marigolds, poppies, hollyhocks and valorous sunflowers, we shall never have a garden without them, both for their own sake, and for the sake of old-fashioned folks, who used to love them. ~ henry ward beecher

time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away. ~ marcus aurelius
