"A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant - rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance - but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself."
Roberto Burle Marx
"Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts."
"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers."
