The career of flowers

"The career of flowers differs from ours only in inaudibleness.
I feel more reverence as I grow for these mute creatures whose
suspense or transport may surpass my own."

Emily Dickinson to her cousins
Louise and Frances Norcross,
ca. April 1873

Ah, to be able to think and speak such lovely thoughts.
This quote is from a truely beautiful book that I have just
discovered. "The Paper Garden" by Molly Peacock. In it she
writes about an artist who begins her life's work at 72.
see = A book for any
lover of arts or botony.
