Excerpt from The Beautiful Flower Garden: Its Treatment With Special Regard for the Picturesque; Written and Embellished With Numerous Illustrations by F. Schuyler Mathews; With Notes on Practical FloricultureWe should seek to display the whiteness and purity of the lily in the garden, and not trouble ourselves so much about the shape of the brown earth patch from which it grows. The dainty pink of the rose is not enhanced by the star shape of the garden bed beneath it, nor is the delicate blue of the forget-me-not any prettier when the little plants are jammed together in compact masses. Such methods for laying out a garden do not add to its beauty, in my opinion, nor, for that matter, do they detract from the beauty of the ¿owers; but what is completely lost sight of, is the lesson which nature teaches by every wild ¿ower in every sunny vale and woodland dingle; that is, that light and shade color and form, freedom and grace, and simplicity are the crowning elements of loveliness in Flora's world.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
