Few gifts of Nature bring such universal delight as do flowers. While we are incapable of capturing the full glory of texture and fragrance, we have attempted in this video to extend the opportunity for enjoying their visual beauty from but a fleeting moment per year, to one that you can enjoy anytime. As William C. Bryant noted:

"The south wind searches for the flowers whose fragrance late he bore
And sighs to find them in the wood and by the stream no more."
