I love flowers!
"A man may really love a flower...They come from the same Heart as man himself and are sent to be his companions and ministers...They are joyous, inarticulate children, come with vague messages from the Father of all." George MacDonald
My dad loved firewood. So much so that he paid a logging company to drop giant tree trunks in our yard in Pennsylvania so that he could saw and chop them to pieces after work, piling them up for winter heat.
