“There is no prettier place on earth than in the woods, hills, valleys where we lived. We waded in flowers everywhere we went. Spring flowers of all kinds; red, blue, white, yellow, pink and lavender grew as if God himself had walked along and put them where He knew we’d be.”

— Dolly Parton Family
