In the Garden: Purple, Red and Black!

O'er her warm cheek and rising bosom move
The bloom of young Desire and purple light of Love.
Thomas Gray

Bees can't see the color red, but they like all other bright colors. Red flowers are usually pollinated by bats, birds, butterflies, and wind.

“The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.”

Auguste Rodin (French sculptor of bronze and marble figures, 1840-1917)

“Painters use red like spice.”
Derek Jarman

And priests in black gowns were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars my joys and desires.
William Blake

“We were a silent, hidden thought in the folds of oblivion, and we have become a voice that causes the heavens to tremble.”
Kahlil Gibran

“There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember; and there is pansies, that's for thoughts.”
William Shakespeare

“First you need only look: Notice and honor the radiance of Everything about you… Play in this universe. Tend All these shining things around you: The smallest plant, the creatures and objects in your care. Be gentle and nurture. Listen…”
Anne Hillman

“She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.”
Bible quotes
