Traditional Bouquet

I found this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson to share with you.
"For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father we thank Thee:
For tender grass so fresh and sweet,
Father we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee."
This is from the final page of a book I bought yesterday "Time Began In a Garden", by Emilie Barnes, with lush watercolor illustrations by Glynda Turley.
Some books are just made to start readers garden dreaming.
