I counted more than a dozen kinds of wild flowers on the yard of our family cottage at Moose Lake. I’ve been going to that cottage since I was seven years old.But until I wandered the yard with my camera last weekend I had always taken the variety and loveliness of the wild flowers there for granted. Why hadn’t I appreciated all that beauty right under my nose every summer for more than fifty years?Earth laughs in flowers- Ralph Waldo Emerson
To see the world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour. – William Blake
I owe becoming a painter to flowers. – Monet
