31: In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. | The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful. ~Abram L. Urban

33: It is a golden maxim to cultivate the garden for the nose, and the eyes will take care of themselves. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

35: What's a butterfly garden without butterflies? ~Roy Rogers
