    “Flowers have a mysterious and subtle influence upon the feelings, not unlike some strains of music. They relax the tenseness of the mind. The dissolve its vigor.” Henry Ward Beecher.

    A great photo. Bill

  • Bill, Thank you so much for sharing that quote! Those words express perfectly the feelings I had while photographing this.
