The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more. Ralph Waldo Emerson

To be thrilled by the stars at night; 

to be elated over a bird’s nest 

or a wildflower in spring ~ 

these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~ John Burroughs

Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness. Know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again. ~Unknown

You love roses – so do I.  I wish the sky would rain down roses, as they rain from the shaken bush.  Why will it not?  Then all the valley would be pink and white and soft to tread on.  They would fall as light as feathers, smelling sweet, and it would be like sleeping and like walking all at once! ~ George Eliot

“Charlotte” and friend

Go, little book, and wish to all
Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall,
A bin of wine, a spice of wit,
A house with lawns enclosing it,
A living river by the door,
A nightingale in the sycamore!
~Robert Louis Stevenson


Roses Roses Roses

Charlotte Austin rose

My hard eyes broke and grew a rose
Whose one huge eye saw only you
Flowering in cosmos after cosmos
Laughing as we grew.

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied.  The more one gardens, the more one learns; And the more one learns, the more one realizes how little one knows.

~Vita Sackville-West
