Sex in the Garden

Lady with a Corsage, Edmund C. Tarbell
Lady with a Corsage, Edmund C. Tarbell
“The flower’s leaves … serve as bridal beds which the creator has so gloriously arranged … and perfumed with so many soft scents that the bridegroom with his bride might there celebrate their nuptials with so much greater solemnity. When now the bed is so prepared, it is time for the bridegroom to embrace his beloved bride and offer her his gifts.” – See more at:SEX AND FLOWERS
