I Start this in Golden Flowers

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"

I believe these to be Echinacea flowers.

I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer.  My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music.  It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.  ~ Violette Leduc

Earth laughs in flowers.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul.  ~ The Koran

Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature. ~ Gerard de Nerval
