Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as humans or animals. Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression, some are pensive and difident, others again are plain, honest and upright.
quote by Henry Ward Beecher

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
quote by Walt Whitman

for a list of community gardens as published on the Vancouver's Parks Board site

If we all spent an hour walking through a garden we would find peace. Turn off your television...and tune into the world...
