Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~ Rilke
King’s Ransom Rose
Knock Out Rose
Dwarf Tea Rose
Star Jasmine, Oh the perfume!
and from Iris Murdoch, one of my favorite lines of all time:
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
