Welcome! @sherrycox here is a good link for some ideas http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

I would also add climbing roses and hydrangeas.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

If you want to spend a little money to join you can download a book about flowers in 1859.

Or you can just have a sneak peak for free.
