Flowers of Springtime

“Come the spring with all its splendor,
All its birds and all its blossoms,
All its flowers, and leaves, and grasses.”
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

“Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.”
–Gėrard de Nerval (1808–1855)

“Nature is an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God
speaks to us every hour, if only we will tune in.”
–George Washington Carver (1864–1903)

“I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut
they will give up their secrets...”
–George Washington Carver (1804–1903)

“Look about, O what do I see?
O Spring, smiling at me–
Wake up, O pretty flower,
Spring has come, now is the hour!”
–Linda Pendleton
