A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.

When at last I took the time to look into the heart of a flower, it opened up a whole new world; a world where every country walk would be an adventure, where every garden would become an enchanted one.
Princess Grace of Monaco (1929-1982)

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
