Walking in a beautiful flower garden is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Here are 60 beautiful garden quotes to honor the best that life has to offer.
Let’s have a little exercise. Ready?
Imagine yourself in front of a stoned wall without any openings. You notice a small light coming from the bottom of the wall. Curiously, you pressed through one of the stones and were thrilled to discover that stones in that one part can easily be displaced. You went through them one by one until finally, you’ve created a big enough hole to pass to the other side.
The other side of the wall presented you with wonders too magnificent to put into actual words. Flowers of all kinds, shapes, and colors were growing everywhere. Piles and piles of exquisite ferns and herbs were thrown in all sides. Birds happily singing between them.
How did that make you feel? You felt exalted, didn’t you? Even the thought of the best nature has to offer gives us exuberant joy. It makes us feel at peace and gives us hope that there is something that life has to offer. It makes us feel the joy that Mary Lennox felt when she first entered The Secret Garden (Love Burnett’s novels? Here are some of the best Frances Hodgson Burnett quotes).
To help you appreciate life’s beauty through the lens of mother nature, we’ve compiled inspirational quotes and sayings about flower gardens, as well as flower beds, flowers from the garden, and flowers from my garden quotes.
