Quotes About Flowering Plants

"An acre of poppies and a forest of spruce boggle no ones mind. Even ten square miles of wheat gladdens the hearts of most . . .

We are no more distressed at their proliferation than an owl is at a population explosion among field mice . . . but in the animal world things are different, and human feelings are different . . . Fecundity is anathema only in the animal. "Acres and acres of rats" has a suitably chilling ring to it that is decidedly lacking if I say, instead, "acres and acres of tulips"." - Author: Annie Dillard
