"A painter should be able to make a good picture of any subject, but it is done, not by literal statement of formations, but by work which shows his application of the nature of the scene-its dignity, or repose, the desolation of it, or its association with human beings. Perhaps its individuality must be insisted upon; or lost in a larger idea that is suggested by a mood of nature, the heat of the day, the softness of the spring air, or the gales of autumn.
(Rex Vicat Cole)
"The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives."
( Gertrude Jekyll)
