"No member of a botany class or a garden club ever heard Miss Eastwood refuse to examine a plant with the disparaging remark, Oh, I've seen that flower before. Whenever or whereever she might have been shown a flower, no matter how common and how weedy, the truth and the beauty exhibited by the structural formation of that flower would have at once inspired a spirited lesson on what she saw and what it meant." ; Signed by Author
