Pansies and hyacinth

“Flowers, to my thinking, are not merely pretty-pretty.  They have in their fragrance an earthiness of the humus and the corruptive earth from which they spring. . . . And pansies, in their streaked faces, have a look of many things besides heartsease.”
     — D. H. Lawrence, Pansies
