9781330060407: Familiar Garden Flowers (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Familiar Garden Flowers

Light words are at times more serviceable than learned lines, and persuasions are often more effective than arguments. This is especially the case in respect of subjects that are adapted for universal enjoyment, and that appeal to feeling first and afterwards arouse curiosity and set the mind to work. Garden flowers give more delight, perhaps, to those who study their history and cultivation and uses, than to such as admire them but in a casual way, and who may be said to smile and pass on. But in either case the gratification, which is one of sentiment in the first instance, becomes an intellectual exercise, and may be aided by one given to gossiping, and with a little knowledge to flavour his words. It is with some such purpose the following papers have been penned to accompany a series of picture adapted to awaken and sustain an interest in "familiar garden flowers."
