271. A greenhouse is a way of upgrading your hardiness zone. ~Hugh Johnson

Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too.
For unconscious of a less propitious clime,
There blooms beauty, warm and snug,
While the winds whistle and the snows descend.
All peep through foliage at the storm,
And seem to smile at what they need not fear.
~Edited excerpt from a poem by William Cowper


Flowers…have a mysterious and subtle influence upon the feelings, not unlike some strains of music.  They relax the tenseness of the mind.   ~Henry Ward Beecher

…just as I (God) gave you the green plants, I give you everything.  ~Genesis 9:3   ✝
