Love-in-a-mist (Nigella damascena)

“There is not a flower that opens, not a seed that falls into the ground, and not an ear of wheat that nods on the end of its stalk in the wind that does not preach and proclaim the greatness and the mercy of God to the whole world.”

‑Thomas Merton


Night-blooming Cereus (Selenicereus grandiflorus)

“In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends.”

‑Kazuko Okakura


Parrot Tulip (Tulipa x hybrida)

it's your world for the moment.”

without a smile; a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars
of the earth? Are not our stars the flowers of heaven?”
