“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”

~Helen Keller

 

Helen Keller was deaf and blind from infancy. But she never lost the battle and she became the first deaf-blind person to graduate from college. She will remain alive forever, as inspiration to the blinds of the world.

In my garden there is a large space for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
