Quote of the Day (Henry Ward Beecher, on the ‘Countenance’ of Flowers)

“Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.”— American preacher Henry Ward Beecher, “A Discourse on Flowers,” in The General Baptist Repository, and Missionary Observer (1853)

I took this photo near the duck pond in Saddle River County Park, in Ridgewood, NJ.
